I had all the ingredients on hand and decided it was about time I make homemade sun dried tomato soup. This recipe is easy and quick to make.
I love soup. To the extent that I could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. And that’s exactly what I decided to do this past Sunday. I had all the ingredients on hand and decided it was about time I make home made sun dried tomato soup. This soup is supposed to be pureed but I was so eager to try it that I ate two whole bowls before I got to this step. It’s good either way. Just a matter of preference over the consistency.
Now, when I eat my sun dried tomato soup I want it boiling hot. None of this lukewarm gulp it up quickly nonsense. The steam must be coming off the surface.I can’t even begin to express how annoying it is when you sit down, get comfortable, are ready to slurp delicious soup leftovers only to realize that the microwave/stove has failed you and the soup is barely even hot. That’s the worst. D could eat the soup at any temperature – not me though, I want mine just right.
