Creamy Tomato Soup

Standard

Create your own heart-warming version of tomato soup that posts less than the can you’d buy at the store. In this recipe, crushed tomatoes are mixed with sautéed onion and garlic, pureed, then turned into a velvety concoction by stirring in heavy cream.

Ingredients

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 28-oz. can crushed tomatoes, with juice
1 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup heavy cream, warmed
Salt and pepper

Preparation

Warm oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook until slightly softened and fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in flour to blend, about 1 minute.

Add tomatoes with juice and broth to saucepan, increase heat to high and bring to a boil. Stir or whisk constantly until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes.

Working in batches, carefully transfer soup to a blender and puree until smooth. Pour into a bowl until all soup is pureed. Return soup to saucepan, stir in cream and cook over low heat for 3 to 5 minutes, until heated through. Do not boil. Season with salt and pepper. Serve hot in warmed cups.tomato-soup-ay-1892157-x

EasyNoms Presents a Friendsgiving Feast

Standard

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, it’s time to start planning that Thanksgiving feast, and by feast we mean an abundance of food other than your bag of bread and discount shredded cheese (let’s be honest, do you even grill your sandwich or do you just eat your cheese with bread on the side?).

Your friends are lazy, so it’s up to you to feed them. Normally you would resist, but it’s the holidays and you feel this inexplicable urge to act the good samaritan. Lucky for you, EasyNoms has just the recipes to make a feast without all the fuss.

Check back every day leading up to Thanksgiving for a new recipe, and Tweet pics of your creations to us @EasyNoms.

Bisou, our loves, and happy Thanksgiving!

Halloween Tip #2: Reeses!

Standard

20141101_194431

Halloween instantly brings to mind Trick or Treating!  And that means lots of candy.  One of my favorites is Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.  To get into the spirit for Halloween (or to get rid of that mountain of candy you’ve accumulated), here are 3 quick tips on how to further incorporate these bits of chocolate-y, peanut-buttery goodness into your life.

1. Hot Cocoa

Next time you’re settling down for a cup of hot chocolate, add a Reese’s to your cup before you add your cocoa powder mix, marshmallows, and boiling water.  It’s delicious!

2. Waffles/Pancakes

Right after you pour your batter into your waffle-maker, pop a handful of these on too!

If you’re making pancakes, you can use Reese’s Pieces, or chop your Reese’s into smaller bits, and sprinkle them into your batter.  Then make pancakes as normal.

3. Cupcakes/Muffins

Just before you pop your next batch into the oven, press a Reese’s right into the middle of each muffin!  When it’s done, you’ll have a bite of molten chocolate and peanut-butter filling as a surprise for whoever you want to impress!
