Garden Recipe 4 of 20


Mmmm.... I love a good tomato soup recipe.

Recipe No 4. :Classic Tomato Soup (found via Styleberry Blog)

I've used this recipe several times now, but this was the first time using fresh basil and thyme from the herb garden. When we eventually attempt to grow tomatoes again, I'd love to try making it with home grown tomatoes as well.

Verdict: Beau isn't a fan of tomatoes except in ketchup and salsa, so I made this on a day he was gone for dinner. I, of course, ate more than my belly could technically hold, and still had leftovers for days. I enjoyed ever last drop of this soup and will not let myself make it again until we restock our tupperware dishes so I can freeze some of the leftovers.

After years of me (& Daniel Tiger) reminding Ephram how good it is to try new foods, he actually gave it a go! He said he liked it, but didn't ask for any more than the first few bites he had. Alwyn actually liked it! But it sure was messy!

As an attempt to get my family eating healthier and from our garden, I'm on a mission to make 20 different recipes using ingredients from our backyard veggie, fruit, & herb gardens.  You can see the rest of my recipes here.
