Since it was playoff night, Jay came over for a simple dinner, soup and sandwiches in front of the TV. Plus nothing’s better than grilled cheese and tomato soup on a cold and rainy (football) night.
We loved both the soup and the sandwiches. The soup is vegan, made creamy by using a cashew cream (easy to make up at home). I’ve had the book checked out from the library for a couple of weeks but this is the first thing I’ve tried. Lots of excellent-sounding recipes in there, though. Grilled cheese is just grilled cheese, right? Nope. This version is over the top cheesy and creamy (is it wrong to have a grilled cheese sandwich with a vegan soup?). It’s filled with a mixture of shredded cheese, sour cream, dijon mustard, salt and pepper, then the bread is slathered with butter before grilling the sandwich. Really delicious, especially on freshly made bread from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day.
