This recipe is for my sister. No, literally for my sister. she asked me to make a recipe for a great meaty tomato soup. Not the old fashioned kind with cabbage and buckets full of sugar, but a rich, savory, meaty tomato soup that she could put on her yom tov menu.
Like any good sister does, I got to work coming up with the best, richest, most delicious tomato soup I could come up with. The end result is incredible. It’s savory, it’s delicious, it’s phenomenal. You know when you have a really, really, really good meatball sauce and you kind of want to just eat it with a spoon? Yeah, that’s kind of what this soup tastes like! Do I sound like I’m overstating how great this soup? When you try it, you’ll understand. It really is that good!
So go ahead, what’re you waiting for?
