Creamy Tomato Soup
With goat cheese and crispy croutons
My recipe this week is truly an all-rounder. If you've got little time, you can make it super fast, let it simmer and enjoy. But also freezing the soup for meal prep and defrosting at any time works great. However, the tomato soup is of course also suitable for a nice meal as a delicious starter. This dish has personal meaning to me, because my "abuelito" showed me his version of a tomato soup with cream cheese many years ago. Since then I have often recooked the soup and adapted it again and again. So my recipe is inspired by him and I like to think of him every time I make it. I hope you like this recipe as much as I do and that you feel warm and cozy when you eat it! For another warming dish have a look here!

1,5L Strained tomatoes

Season with salt, pepper, paprika powder, basil and thyme. Stir well and let simmer with the lid on for about 15 minutes.
2 Slices of bread · 1 Garlic clove· Oil
Meanwhile, cut the bread and a clove of garlic into small pieces and roast in some oil until the bread is very crispy.

Stir the tomato soup well and season if necessary. Attention: don't add too much salt, as the cheese will give a lot of flavor. Puree the soup finely with a blender. Then let simmer. The longer the soup can simmer, the better. But at least another 10 minutes.
