Cut costs at the supermarket by rethinking how you buy meats. Here, we use a less expensive cut of beef and stretch it by adding colorful fresh veggies to the entrée. Thinly slice the meat and stir-fry it quickly to keep it tender.
The amazing thing about this rich, flavor-packed tomato soup? It’s made without using a pot. Rather than sautéing aromatics and vegetables in batches over the stove, all the components of your homemade tomato soup are roasted together on a sheet pan for deep, caramelized flavor in the oven. Just toss them in some oil on your baking sheet, pop the pan in the oven, and the majority of your hands-on work is done. Once your veggies are cooked, you simply puree everything in a blender with a bit of cream. You can pour the soup straight from the blender into serving bowls, and then all that’s left to do is dive on in. For a peak tomato soup experience, serve with a warm grilled cheese sandwich.
