Spicy Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Spicy Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

How is that for a long name for a recipe? I couldn’t figure out which adjective was the most important, so I just included them all. I think my favorite part is the fact that its spicy.

It’s been awhile since I posted in this blog, though now that the school semester is wrapping up, I will have all summer to post again. Boom!

I know this has nothing to do with Catholic stuff, but I was playing around with my own concoction and I was surprised it turned out great. So I had to go ahead and blog just so that I could document it.

So here goes:

–1 28oz can diced tomatoes
–2 14oz cans chicken broth
– 1 tsp dry basil
–a dash or two of red pepper
–1 tbs garlic powder
– 1 tsp black pepper
–1 tsp salt
–1/2 cup milk
–1/4 cup flour

Its easy. I just poured the chicken broth and can of tomatoes in a pot and spiced it with the basil, red pepper, and garlic powder. I let it boil, then reduced to low heat, covered it, and let it simmer for about 20 minutes.

In a separate bowl I mixed milk, flour, salt and pepper. I whisked it until it was smooth, and then stirred into the soup. I let it boil again for about 2-3 minutes.

Spicy, Creamy, Chunky, deliciousness.
