In the Kitchen with Amy

When I visit my grandmother we like to watch a show on QVC called  In the Kitchen with David.  My daughter has even caught me watching it at home and she subtly reminds me that I am too young to be watching such a channel.  She’s so sweet, but she’s right!  Anyway, one of the products that the darling host David repeatedly promotes is the Vitamix.  Topple that with the fact that my friend Holly owns a Vitamix and loves it; well, I thought it would be perfect for me, the kitchen lovin’ girl that I am.

If you were to talk to me about the kitchen, you would find out that there are a few gazillion reasons why I love abhor cooking, but I can honestly say that the Vitamix is working on repairing that relationship.  I am proud to say that I have successfully mastered one recipe, and that my dear friends is Simple Tomato Soup. I am all about “keeping it simple” and “less is more” so this makes the mark!  The recipe is straight from the official Vitamix Simply Fresh cookbook.

Simple Tomato Soup

Here are the ingredients from the Simply Fresh cookbook:

  • 2 cans of diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 small onion
  • 1 small stalk of celery
  • Dash of hot sauce
  • 1/2 cup of half and half
  • salt & pepper to taste

It’s oh so easy, and it’s oh so yummy!  There is no chopping, dicing, or sauteing.  You just throw everything in the Vita, and voila, you have the perfect soup!  What’s even more amazing is that the soup is pipin’ hot when you pour it out of the Vitamix. It makes a tasty addition to my healthy lunch.

I’ll eventually attempt to make different soup recipes and I’ll be happy to share my kitchen success!  Thank you, Vitamix, for making my kitchen experience a positive one!

That’s all the kitchen news at my end!

Happy Cooking!
