Creamless Creamy Tomato Soup

Soup is one of my favorite things to cook. On a cold day there’s nothing quite like a delicious bowl of soup and while canned soups from the grocery store might suffice in a pinch there is nothing quite like the real thing.

There’s something wonderful about throwing fresh vegetables, spices and broth in a pot and having it transform into a flavorful velvety bowl of healthy goodness. Most times cream is added to create a smooth, rich texture and many of my recipes growing up incorporated this technique. But this recipe intrigued me, could there really be such a thing as a creamy creamless soup? In fact there can be.

I served mine with grilled cheese sandwiches, which you could cut into squares and use as croutons for the soup if you’re feeling clever. Otherwise, a good dunk never hurt anybody. Enjoy!

Welcome. Grab a spatula.

Hi! Welcome to my little corner of the blogosphere. After much heel dragging, sliced appendages & more dishes than I care to think about, I have decided to create a food blog in hopes that I can share some of the wonderful recipes I’ve grown up with and encountered in my culinary travels.

I grew up with home-cooked meals from Mom and traditional holiday spreads from Grandma. Food and family have always gone hand-in-hand and it is these traditions I hold sacred. I hope to share my story through recipes both old & new and I hope you’ll join me in my culinary pursuits.

With Sugar & Spice,
