Lunch / Dinner
Leave the can of tomato soup on the shelf. This cheesy Tomato-Cheddar Soup is just as fast and so much better. With just one spoonful you’ll wonder where this has been all of your life. Looking for a fun side dish to go along with the soup? Try these Parmesan & Boursin Crostini.
OFF HEAT, STIR IN:
For the best texture, shred a block of Cheddar instead of using purchased preshredded cheese, which has an added anti-caking agent.
Add tomatoes; lightly crush with the back of spoon. Stir in broth and bring to a boil; cook 10 minutes.
Purée soup using a handheld blender, or in batches using a standard blender. Reduce heat to medium and stir in 4 cups Cheddar cheese, a handful at a time, letting each addition fully melt before adding the next.
Off heat, stir in milk; season soup with salt and pepper. Top servings of soup with basil and Cheddar cheese.
