Tomato soup makes a great base for lots of different kinds of toppings and garnishes. Here is one of my favorites. But the truth is, you could add this to any soup you wanted.

Serves 4


  • 1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups cremini mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 4 tsp. soft goat cheese, at room temperature
  • 4 medium fresh basil leaves, cut into thin ribbons
  • Basic Tomato Soup (see separate recipe )


    Make the soup according to the directions, but puree only a quarter of the soup, leaving the rest chunky. Heat the oil in a medium nonstick pan over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and sauté until softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir the mushrooms into the soup. Top each soup bowl with 1 teaspoon goat cheese and some of the basil ribbons.
