What could be more comforting on a chilly day than tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich? Mya only eats tomato soup if it is made from scratch. Her favorite recipe is “Lava Soup” from her Shrek cookbook. It is also one of my favorites. I followed the exact recipe, but, I love a thick soup, so in the last 5 minutes cook time, I added about 2 cups frozen cauliflower. Once the soup is done, just ladle it into the blender and mix until smooth and creamy.
For the grilled cheeze, I started with fresh whole wheat bread from the bakery, then I layered in 2 kinds of veggie cheese, mozzarella style on one side, cheddar on the other and tomato and onion in between. I grilled these up on my favorite griddle until they were crisp outside and melted inside.
