Ahh! Dave Navarro played on this one. I don’t really listen to “funny” bands. By “funny” I meant funny-weird, not funny-haha. They have come a long way since “Higher Ground”, “Give It Away” and “Mother’s Milk”. And who can forget that “sock” picture of them crossing Abbey Road a la The Beatles? Heh!

Homemade Roasted Cream of Tomato Soup with Garlic-Parmesan Croutons

I love the color of this soup. Pure red! Although I did add whole basil leaves for flavor when cooking. I fished it out just before I blended the soup with an immersion blender so that the green didn’t interrupt the full-on vermillion I was hoping for.

I used and Italian-brand canned tomatoes. Italians have the best tomatoes, or so I’m told.

I’ve also used fresh tomatoes roasted in the oven with balsamic vinegar and salt. That brought out the sweetness of the tomatoes. A little touch of cream at the end of the cooking, after blending, provided richness to the soup. Yum!
Served the soup with some Garlic-Parmesan Croutons. So good!

And I will have some for lunch today. But no more croutons because the kids have snacked on them. So just with plain salt crackers will do.

      Oh sheesh! I used to have a pair of red pants too when I was in my teens. It once belonged to my aunt from way back in the 80s. And we know how funky that decade was. Haha!
