Tomato Soup with Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Extract
I have a new favorite vanilla. It’s Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract.
I also have a new favorite recipe for tomato soup. It comes from the cookbook pictured above: A Century of Flavor: Nielsen-Massey Vanillas. Guess what it has in it?
The exact recipe title is Fresh Basil-Tomato Soup with Vanilla. I made it on a drizzly night in late March, one of those nights when the apartment is chilly and you realize that your landlord has turned off the heat in your building since spring has technically arrived.
The kitchen filled with the smells of tomatoes, onions, basil, and italian seasoning. And then, a hit of sweetness: vanilla!
A new and welcome combination.
