Holy Spoons

The gift of hospitality sometimes comes with food.

Tomato Soup

Words of wisdom from the family: “Creamy. Savory. A bowl full of yum!” This is loosely based on a recipe from Pinch of Yum, but we made some considerable changes just for fun. We paired it with grilled cheese sandwiches and I must say it was a great idea.


  • 4 slices bacon
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 3/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 6 oz. tomato paste (~10 tablespoons)
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 2 15-oz cans diced tomatoes
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Parmesan cheese


  1. Cook the bacon according to package instructions, and pat with paper towel to remove grease. Chop or pull apart into small pieces.
  2. Puree all ingredients except cheese in a blender until smooth.
  3. Pour into medium pot on stove and cook over medium heat for 30 minutes-1 hour, stirring often.
  4. Garnish with a generous spoonful of Parmesan cheese. Best accompanied by a grilled cheese sandwich.
