This recipe is great because it's easy, delicious, and quick as a flash! If you serve it with some homemade bread or garlicky croutons, all the better.
Quick and Tasty Tomato Soup
1/4 cup tomato paste
1 cup milk (you can use water but it won't have a creamy taste)
3 large leaves of fresh basil, finely chopped (or 1/4 tsp dried basil)
1 tsp fresh parsley, finely chopped (or a dash dried parsley)
A dash of granulated garlic
1 tsp Parmesan cheese
In a small saucepan combine tomato paste, milk, basil, parsley, and garlic. Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until warm and aromatic, about five minutes. If desired, puree in blender (though I don't think it's necessary unless you don't like to see your herbs). Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top and serve.
Makes one serving, but is easily multiplied to feed more.
