Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 Medium Pot
  • 1 Medium Pan
  • Step 1 - Prepare the Ingredients

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Throughly rinse produce and pat dry. Trim and thinly slice green onion. Mince garlic.

  • Step 2 - Cook the Garlic

    Cook the Garlic

    Have tomatoes set up (in the next step) at your cooking station to prevent garlic from getting overcooked - adding them quickly will cool the pot down. Heat 1 tsp. olive oil to a medium pot over medium heat. Add garlic to the pan and cook for 30-45 seconds, or until fragrant.

  • Step 3 - Add the Tomatoes

    Add the Tomatoes

    Add canned tomatoes, sugar, basil, vegetable base, and 1 cup of warm water to pot. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook for 8-10 minutes.

  • Step 4 - Cook the Grilled Cheese

    Cook the Grilled Cheese

    While the soup is cooking, heat 2 tsp. olive oil in medium pan over medium heat. Brush one side of sourdough bread slices with truffle oil. Place a piece each of Swiss cheese and cheddar cheese between two slices of bread, truffle oiled-sides in. Add sandwiches to pan and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cheese is melted.

  • Step 5 - Add the Sour Cream

    Add the Sour Cream

    Turn off heat. Slowly stir half of the sour cream into the soup (reserving remaining for garnish.) Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Gently stirring in sour cream off heat prevents it from separating or "breaking", and makes for a smooth and enriched sauce.

  • Step 6 - Plate the Dish

    Plate the Dish

    Place equal amounts of tomato soup into two soup bowls. Garnish with a dollop of sour cream and green onions. Cut grilled cheese sandwiches in half and stack three halves per serving next to soup.
