Tuscan Tomato Soup with Rosemary Garlic Croutons

Ok, so alot of times I will make a recipe here or there from a cookbook or magazine. But for the most part I won’t share them on Joyful Healthy Eats because, well, I didn’t come up with the recipe.

But in this case.. I NEED to share it. It is too good not to share!

I don’t about you, but I have a “thing” aka.. obsession with Creamy Tomato Soup!

When its cold out, there is nothing more comforting to me then a hot bowl of Tomato Soup served with a Crunchy gooey Grilled Cheese Sandwich.

I mean, can you have one without the other? I think not! Grilled Cheese is meant to be with Tomato Soup and thats that. Anyone else who protests is just plain crazy.

So when I was looking through the September edition of the Foodnetwork Magazine, this Tuscan Tomato Soup caught my eye.

First off, it was Tomato Soup which makes my heart skip a beat! YUM in the tum!

Secondly, it had white beans in it. Hmmmm… great creative way to make the soup creamy without adding dairy. Needless to say, I was intrigued.

Lastly, I had tons of rosemary in my backyard so I thought, what the heck. Let’s give it a try!

Holy Moly!!! So glad I went with my instincts on trying this one. So stinking good, and the Rosemary Garlic Croutons are a must with this soup.

They compliment the rosemary from the soup so perfectly and add a little texture to the dish which is always a good thing.

Plus the longer those flavorful croutons sit in the soup, the more their yummy flavors soak into the soup and the more the soup flavors soak into the croutons. Basically its one heck of an amazing union between bread and soup that you definitely don’t want to miss out on.

Flavor party in the mouth!!!

 

Plus it takes like 30 minutes to make, which is always a winner in my book!

This is one of those recipes you are gonna wanna tuck away in your back pocket the next time you’re thinking of making a Tomato Soup. So… go ahead and it now so you don’t forget! 🙂

    Tomato soup and grilled cheese sammies = my ultimate fall lunch. This soup looks soooo cozy and comforting, Krista! I am kinda dying over how awesome those rosemary croutons look—I also have a ton of rosemary in my garden that needs using up. Problem solved. 😀 pinned!

    1. Oh girl, make these croutons. I seriously would just snack on them because I had some left over! But make the soup too.. ready go! 🙂

    I also have a thing for soups! Just about any in fact, but especially something rich and creamy. I can’t believe I’ve never tried adding croutons to soup — this does look amazing!
