Autumn Soup

With fall in full swing I love to make a hearty and tasty soup.
Tomato has been one of my favorites since childhood, 
so I thought I'd share this recipe with you.

1 medium onion, finely chopped about 1/2 cup
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
2 cans condensed tomato soup (10 3/4oz. size)
1 soup can of milk~ (I use skim milk)
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon sweet basil leaves, or my variation of a one tablespoon of pesto.
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

In a medium saucepan, cook and stir onion in butter till tender.
Stir in cream cheese.
 Gradually stir in the soup and milk, beat with whip till smooth.
Add the seasonings. Heat through and stir frequently, but do not let it boil.
To garnish, chopped zucchini or peppers give a pretty color and crunch.

How about a club sandwich with this soup? 
Starting with your favorite toasted breads or gluten free variety.
 Add layers of turkey, cheese, bacon, tomato and lettuce.
 Add spreads of your choice, like mustard, mayo, basil pesto or butter.
 Serve with the soup and enjoy!

This meal is great for lunch or dinner.
 Add a salad and it's complete.
 Quick, easy and so tasty on a crisp fall day or evening.
Great for company too.
I keep this in the frig for a few days.
It's ready and  perfect to pour into a mug and microwave
when you need lunch on the go during the busy holiday season!
Do you love soup this time of year?
What's your favorite?

Thanks for stopping by.
See you next time~
