1 (14-ounce) can fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup (2 ounces) crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
How to Make It
Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic; sauté 1 minute. Add celery, pepper, and chicken; cook 6 minutes or until mixture is heated through. Add tomatoes and broth; bring to a simmer. Cook 8 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese.
Tip: Gorgonzola is a type of blue cheese. You can substitute crumbled feta or goat cheese, if you prefer.
This is a great recipe for basic tomato soup! My husband didn't like the gorgonzola, but I did. So he started over with a fresh bowl--and loved it! The only adjustments I made were to add a little diced onion and used the emulsifying blender before adding the chicken to smooth it out a little bit.
We love this soup! I have added sauteed onion, more garlic, home made smoked turkey broth, broccoli, squash - it doesn't matter, it always comes out delicious. Gorgonzola gives it a deeper flavor, but you can't taste the "blue" in it; feta is just as good and adds a kick of salt. We tried siracha instead of the red pepper and it cooked out, but a splash or two in the bowl was great. A big pot simmering on the stove makes everybody happy.
This is a good quick soup that can be altered in many ways. We didn't have cooked chicken so I substituted a cooked potato. As per the suggestion of the other reviewers, I mixed the blue cheese in the whole soup at the end. Completely made the dish. Would not be that tasty w/o the blue cheese. Will make again in a pinch.
What an easy soup to make. I used 1 can crushed tomatoes and 1 can diced to make it thicker. I also added 1 tbsp of worcestershire sauce and 1/2 tsp of thyme.
I cooked mine in the crockpot after I sauteed the celery and garlic.
Really nice soup for a chilly day.
We had this tonight for dinner...YUM! I used diced tomatoes with basil and oregano and feta instead of gorgonzola. It was super good and pretty quick! Perfect with a salad and some crusty bread. Try it and enjoy!
