Valentine’s Day Soup & Sandwich

Tomato soup is just ideal for Valentine’s Day. The soup could be perfect if you add a heart-shaped sandwich! Made these vegetable soup recipe with one tweak, & then served it with grilled cheese sandwiches on whole-wheat bread cut into heart shapes with a large cookie cutter. Comforting, delicious and easy appetizers!


1 Tbsp. butter
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 small clove garlic, pressed
1/4 tsp. paprika
3 fresh basil leaves, finely chopped, plus additional leaves, chiffonade, for garnish
3 oz. softened Neufchatel cheese
3/4 cup skim milk
1 can condensed tomato soup
1 can (15 oz.) petite diced tomatoes, undrained

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add onion & garlic & saute about 2 minutes, until tender.
Reduce heat to low & add paprika, basil, & cream cheese. Gradually stir in milk & soup & stir until smooth.
Turn heat back up to medium & add tomatoes, stirring constantly & breaking up tomatoes further by squashing them with the back of a wooden spoon, until hot.
Serve with heart-shaped grilled cheese sandwiches!
