Roasted Tomato Basil Soup

I went to inauguration today.

Here’s a loose outline:

Obama killed it. Energy was amazing. Beyonce was there.

See the pattern? Everything was awesome. The lone exception: temperature.

Ergo, tomato soup/grilled cheese ultimate combo happened.

This is obv a classic but if you are looking for something to resemble the pureed soup you had as a shnub, this is not it. Ina’s Roasted Tomato Basil Soup is thick and chunky and everything I ever wanted. Ina probably felt a chill go through her spine as I used an immersion blender to break the texture down a little bit (sorry girl- I don’t have a food mill, a perpetually cheesin’ husband or a house in the Hamptons). This has a double hit of tomato flavor from fresh tomatoes I roasted in the oven and some San Marzano ones I got at the store. Served up with a grilled cheese, it was the perfect end to a historical day in DC.
