Making Tomato Soup with Muir Glen  

As prepared by The Food in my Beard

For a while, I was fanatical about cooking pizzas.


So much so, that I built a pizza oven in my back yard. During this time, it was important to me to perfect the pizza sauce. To do this, every time I needed canned tomatoes I would buy a different brand at the store. Before cooking with them, I would taste the tomatoes themselves, and the liquid in the can, and take notes about the different flavors and characteristics of each brand. I tasted super expensive DOP certified San Marzano varieties, cheap store brands, and everything in between! I settled on a favorite brand, Muir Glen, and ever since they have been my tomato of choice.

Fast forward a few years. Tablespoon asks me to go to an event all about tasting the brand new Muir Glen reserve tomatoes. Would I write a few recipes with them? I almost can’t believe it! Sign me up, please. Throw in one of the best young chefs in Boston, a bunch of blogger friends, and lots of wine and you have a great night. Here are some pictures of the event, followed by a recipe for a soup we made.

Making the Tomato Soup again

I liked the soup so much I decided to make it for my roommates a few nights later.

Dumping tomatoes into pot

It is extremely simple. All you need is about a half hour and some onion, tomato, garlic, cream, parmesan, and paprika.
