A hot bowl of creamy tomato soup always provides warmth and comfort on a cold winter day, so why not turn that bowl into a filling meal as well? Puréed beans lend a hearty and heartening creaminess to any soup, while adding plenty of fiber, protein and numerous essential minerals and vitamins.
This roasted tomato soup with pinto beans is flavored with a sweet and smoky blend of roasted garlic and herbs, and while it's nothing to look at particularly, the delicious aroma will certainly draw the attention of anyone within sniffing distance. Best of all, the soup is easy enough to make that you won't flinch at having to prepare it after a long day of work.
This soup goes beautifully with grilled toast and cheese made with fresh French or Italian bread and an old sharp Cheddar.
