It's always nice to have a bit of Summer in Winter.

A few days ago, I found some heirloom tomatoes that were greenhouse grown.  It's a great way to have fresh tomatoes this time of year.

We made fresh tomato soup...

So yummy!
And so easy!

We use our Vitamix blender.  We put the chopped tomatoes in, some olive oil, a little salt and pepper and send it for a spin...

For those not familiar with a Vitamix, the centrifugal force heats the soup after a few minutes of running.

It gets cooked of course but still has a wonderfully fresh tomato taste...

We popped in some fresh basil and let it go for another minute or two...

That's it. It comes out piping hot. Seriously, there is steam coming off the top when you pop open the lid...

We poured it in bowls and made a grilled cheese sandwich (because, tomato soup and grilled cheese, am I right?).  Oh my, comfort food at it's best.


  1. looks wonderful and it's a perfect day for a nice hot bowl of soup.
    Had showers this morning but now wind has picked up & temperature is starting to drop

  2. What happens when you blend something you do not want to be hot?

  3. It takes a while to make "hot" soup in the one I have. I can't tolerate the noise long enough to make hot soup. Maybe you have a newer model. I use mine for smoothies! If you have any suggestions to get stains off of the pitcher, please let me know. I scrub it using baking soda, but it's not taking all the blueberry stain off. I am reluctant to use a clorox solution.

  4. Looks delicious! Perfect for this cold weather.
