How to make soup from a can taste better than soup from a can (also known as a riff on classic combination of tomato soup and grilled cheese):
Pick a good soup base to begin with. In this case, Trader Joe’s Organic Tomato Bisque.
Plate in beautiful bowl.
Re-add salt (if low sodium).
Drizzle with olive oil — I’m working my way through a fantastic bottle of Fairway Market’s Novello Olive Oil (1L, $19.95) at the moment.
Add fresh herbs. I’ve got flat-leaf parsley in the fridge; basil is beautiful for tomato soup.
For tomato soup, accompany with cheese. Cheese toast, grilled cheese, even blue cheese on water crackers will do.
PREP TIME: 10 minutes
