Another easy and ready in 15 minute soup recipe with a special addition homemade garlic cheesy croutons and fresh chopped spinach. Perfect any day of the week but comforting for me when you need to get that chill out because of the weather! Perfect to leave in a slow cooker after you make on the stove top too!
This is one of those easy to throw together comfort soups. I love this soup with croutons. It really kicks up the flavors using garlic croutons.
This tomato basil soup is perfect anytime of the year. The best is using crushed plum tomatoes from my garden in the summer.
This is always one I make sure I cook when the garden has fresh basil in bloom and the tomatoes are ripe, usually around August.
In addition to fresh basil and spinach, I sometimes load this soup up with shredded mozzarella cheese. The basil, tomato and cheese all are a wonderful pairing to this soup. Melted under the broiled just for a few seconds puts the perfect topping with those garlic croutons, you have the perfect tomato basil soup.
I usually also love this Tomato Basil Spinach Soup, with some Romano cheese. Can you tell I am a cheese lover?
One of my favorite summer salads is insalata caprese using fresh plum tomatoes, slices of thick mozzarella, fresh basil that would accompany this perfectly especially on a bed of fresh spinach! That may be another post!
