Sharon’s expert tips.
- Leftover soup can be stored covered in the refrigerator for several days.
- If making ahead, make the soup up to the point of adding the tomato paste and store covered in the refrigerator for several days. Before serving, add the cream, basil, salt, and pepper. Heat over medium heat until hot and serve.
- Since this recipe only calls for three tablespoons of tomato paste, you might want to consider purchasing it in a tube instead of a can. With a tube of tomato paste, you can just use the amount you need, then store the rest in the refrigerator until you need it again. No more cans of half-used tomato paste lurking in the back of your refrigerator.
- Instead of buying chicken stock in a box, I like and recommend jarred Better Than Bouillon Reduced Sodium Roasted Chicken Base. You can find it next to regular chicken stock. No, this is not a sponsored post. I just like the convenience of using this product and making just the amount of chicken stock I need. And, I think you will too!
- If you don’t have an immersion blender, you can use a regular blender to puree the soup. You will have to do it in batches and be sure to place a dish towel over the lid to prevent any hot liquid or steam from escaping.
