Smoky Tomato Soup with Gruyere Toasts.
It has been ages since I joined Deb's Souper Sundays, so this past week I made this recipe for tomato soup.
Easy soup, few ingredients. Lots of tomatoes, some thyme & sweet smoked paprika as the heavy-hitters.
The flavor was most certainly diminished by out-of-season tomatoes. Trying again in two or three months would likely make this a heck of a lot tastier.
Finished with the tiniest amount of cream & blended & strained (I used an immersion blender instead), and served with baguette slices, toasted under a broiler, topped with shredded Gruyere and broiled again. Nice, light...not exactly dinner, but an excellent lunch.
