There are a few precious weeks here when this soup is at its peak. These weeks when the temperature is cool enough that I begin to think ‘mmmm soup’ but the tomatoes you can find are still flavorful and juicy and not the strip-mined hard things that take over the grocery store in winter. These weeks are when this soup is amazing and really a must!
So… go and make it. It is like a grilled cheese sandwich on top of a bowl of really good tomato soup. What is not to like?
