The deep flavor of this soup belies how easy it is to make. Simply sauté onion and garlic, then add crushed tomato and chicken stock. Once the soup simmers for 30 minutes, it’s ready to eat. That’s all the work required for a pot of the best homemade tomato soup you’ve ever tasted.
Potato, Ham, and Roasted Green Pepper Soup is very gratifying without being heavy. The green peppers add a mellow flavor without heat.
Tomato and basil is a classic flavor combination. Roasted cauliflower blended into the soup provides all the creaminess desired.
Flavorful bites of chicken, tender yet firm cannellini beans, and fresh, bright threads of kale make the basic soup. Sorghum adds a bit of “tooth” and interest.
