The Best Easy Soup Recipes
Nordstrom Tomato Basil Soup | I love this recipe because it reminds me of so many fun meals at the Nordstrom cafe after a long day of shopping with my mom and Nana. This recipe is simple, delicious and easy to freeze for later.
My modifications to the recipe:
- I use Trader Joe’s Mirepoix as the base to almost everything I make. The recipe does NOT call for celery, but I have the knife skills of a small child using a dull knife, zero counter space and a little celery isn’t going to hurt anyone!
- The recipe calls for low-sodium chicken broth. I didn’t have it so I just used bone broth. Big bone broth fan over here after being on keto for so long and honestly I prefer to cook with it.
- GARLIC. The recipe does not call for garlic, but I love garlic so I threw some in.
- I did not make the Parmesan-Garlic Crostini that the recipe suggested. I’ve had these and love them, but I saw the oh-so-famous Cheesecake Factory brown bread at the store and decided to really go for it. Looks like you can order it online here.
What I used to make the recipe
- Le Creuset | Signature Cast-Iron Round Dutch Oven, 5 1/2-Qt. | This magical pot is a SPLURGE but I freaking love it. I’ve had it for years and I honestly think it makes everything taste better. On top of that it is so easy to clean. I never regret using it. It is 100% a kitchen must-have.
- Cuisinart | Smart Stick 2 Speed Hand Blender | Yes, I own an immersion blender. I don’t have martini glasses or oven mitts but I do have an immersion blender! The best part about having an immersion blender when making soup is that you don’t have to remove the soup from the dutch oven, making this a one-pot meal!
