Spicy Tomato Dill Soup

Don't forget to enter the giveaway for the autographed ARC of Dead, Without a Stone to Tell It!


My bestie Hannah came up from Florida for a visit this week. I was really hoping she'd bring warmth with her. It has been crazy cold. D was supposed to take the kids camping this week and they canceled because of the weather. Maybe we're just wimps.

Before heading out to dinner, Hannah and I had a bit of fun with the Easter Bunny.

The Bunny isn't my kid this time! And yes, we're just two big dorks

Then, it was time to get some eats in our bellies. It was one of those cold days where a bowl of soup just sounded really good. The restaurant had this absolutely delicious tomato dill soup that had a nice kick at the end. I had one bowl and wanted more. Of course I figured I could make it myself...

Spicy Tomato Dill Soup

6 garlic cloves, chopped
2 medium onions, diced
2 tbsp butter
1 C veg or chicken stock
3 cans  petite diced tomatoes
1 T dried dill (a good handful if you're using fresh)
1 T red pepper flakes
salt & pepper to taste
2 C half and half

In a large soup pot, melt butter over low heat. Sautee garlic and onions until tender. Add in tomatoes and stock. Simmer 30 minutes. 

Puree soup in a blender until desired texture. I prefer mine on the chunkier side. Return to soup pot and add in dill, pepper flakes, salt, pepper and half and half.  Heat through.

This soup is also wonderful chilled the next day.
