Spicy Tomato Soup a la Farmgirl Gourmet
I gotta admit, I've been a bit lazy in terms of cooking this week, so I decided to change that by making a comforting soup that should last us through the week. As I've been having luck with getting great inspiration through my Pinterest boards, I once again turned to them - specifically my Healthy Eating board.
The recipe I'll tell you about comes from a fabulous blog called Farmgirl Gourmet, which I follow on Pinterest, and it's all about wholesome, responsibly grown food. This particular recipe also happens to be gluten free, so to all my gluten free friends, this one's for you.
Although, I followed Farmgirl's recipe almost to a t, there's a few things in there that I switched around, such as substituting fat free Greek yogurt for the cream cheese that she recommends. I also omitted the sour cream and added some fresh basil and a little bit of parmesan cheese instead. Both worked beautifully, and so did the little drizzle of truffle oil that I put on top. The smokiness from the chipotle peppers and the adobo is divine and nicely clears your sinuses.
The soup is enjoyed with a warm piece of pita bread. Happy fall, Astoria!
