Do you want to make a creamy tomato soup with milk or cream but no veggies or pasta, or more like a tomato-based minestrone vegetable soup that could include pasta?

Also, do you have a blender or food processor?

Not a cooking guy, just bad grammer. Too used to texting. I want to surprise her. She always cooks for me, us.

Hi Jared, you mentioned in a comment above that you wanted to make a minestrone style soup and while this soup is not in that style at all, it is easy and super delicious - Melissa Clark's Curried Coconut Tomato Soup.

It is essentially canned tomatoes (which you seem to have plenty of), curry powder and spices and then coconut milk. You could add some nice garnishes to serve and because it is a blended soup, it would freeze and reheat well.

The recipe is in her book, 'Cook This Now', but there are many versions of it online.

Good luck!
