Tomato Parmesan Soup

It’s been cold and rainy for the last couple of days, so I decided it was time to whip up a pot of soup to warm things up a bit. I have a long list of soup recipes piling up that I want to try out, but since I already had most of the ingredients lying around, this tomato soup recipe from Real Simple was a no brainer.

The recipe was beyond easy to make—though chopping onions is always a struggle, and a sob-fest, for me—and was surprisingly tasty with a little basil and melty, shaved Parmesan on top. I opted for Parmesan crisps from Trader Joe’s rather than croutons, and I’m happy to say they were a welcome addition.
