What do you do when you're kinda sick and don't want to make other things? Grilled cheese and tomato soup. Similarly as last time, we halved the recipe which was just about enough for one night for the 2 of us (plus some for the kids).
The (halved) recipe is:
1/2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon dried herbs, such as thyme, oregano, rosemary or basil (or more)
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)
1 28-ounce cans crushed tomatoes
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoons sugar
Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic, herbs and crushed red pepper (if using); cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add tomatoes, water and sugar. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
