soused & sun-dried tomato soup

Soup in the summer??  It doesn’t seem right but when you’re in need of a quick dinner, this one comes together in a cinch (as long as you have your soused tomatoes ready).  It’s also one of the most flavorful soups I’ve ever made, thanks to a combination of slow-roasted Roma tomatoes with tons of herbs and garlic and some sun-dried tomatoes for fun.

Creamy Thai Basil Tomato Soup

I am a sucker for soup in any season but this meal choice is much more appropriate this time of year.  Especially when it’s raining and cold (though here in NorCal, cold is a relative term).  That being said, we will be eating soup for the next few months and I couldn’t be more excited!  Actually I will be eating soup for the next few months.  My husband doesn’t usually join me for dinner when soup is involved, probably because he doesn’t find it to be a substantial meal.  The next question is usually, “Soo…is there anything else for dinner?” followed by a sheepish smile.  If you’re familiar with Seinfeld and his ongoing battle with Banya about whether soup at a restaurant is a meal, then know I’m fully on Team Jerry.  It IS a meal and soup for the win!
