Large Pot



Take the butter out of the fridge to come to room temperature. Halve, peel, and mince the onions. Mince or grate the garlic. Finely chop the basil leaves, reserving a few small leaves for garnish.

cook garlic

Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic to the pot and cook, tossing, 5-6 minutes, until soft and slightly caramelized. Season with salt and pepper.


Add the crushed tomatoes, stock concentrates, 4 teaspoons sugar, and 3 cups water to the pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 7-10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

make grilled cheese

While the tomato soup simmers, make the grilled cheese sandwiches. Divide the cheese between four slices of bread and top with the remaining slices of bread to form sandwiches. Spread the outsides of both sandwiches with 2 tablespoons butter. Heat a large pan over low heat. Add the sandwiches to the pan and cook 3-4 minutes per side, until golden brown and cheese is melted.

Add sour cream

Remove the soup from the heat. Stir in the chopped basil and sour cream. If you have a blender or food processor, transfer the soup (in batches!) to the blender and pulse until almost smooth. If you don’t have a blender, the soup will be just as delicious!


Make the balsamic mixed greens: toss the mixed greens in a medium bowl with 1 tablespoon balsamic and a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

make croutons

Cut each grilled cheese sandwich into 9 squares. Divide the tomato bisque between bowls, then top with the grilled cheese squares. Garnish with the reserved basil leaves and serve alongside the balsamic mixed greens. Enjoy!
