Tomato Soup – Reboot

As I continue on my cooking spree, dinner comes to mind.  A simple tomato soup with a grilled cheese sandwich made with my garbage bread seems like a winner.   Here is a RogueChef classic rebooted to use the Instapot.

From Wikipedia:

Tomato soup is a soup made with tomatoes as the primary ingredient. It may be served hot or cold in a bowl, and may be made in a variety of ways. It may be smooth in texture, and there are also recipes which include chunks (or small pieces) of tomato, cream and chicken/vegetable stock. Popular toppings for tomato soup include sour cream or croutons. Tomato soup is one of the top comfort foods in Poland and the United States. It can be made fresh by blanching tomatoes, removing the skins, then blending into a puree.

I’ll use the instapot and canned tomatoes to make this a quick dish.
