BYCI came across this recipe for Tomato Soup with Basil Yogurt Cream on the website of The Splendid Table

The Splendid Table is the wonderful weekly radio program from National Public Media hosted by Lynne Rossetto Kasper.  Each week Ms. Rossetto Kasper brings us an eclectic mix of stories and recipes all about the love of food.

In Lynne Rossetto Kasper’s own words about her recipe for Tomato Soup with Basil Yogurt Cream: “I figure anything that makes people happy and gives me more leeway for cooking at my own pace is a good idea. For instance, handing friends mugs of hot soup as they come in the door is a great welcome, and it will tide them over if the rest of the food needs to take its time. Besides, what’s not to love about a tomato soup spiked with orange zest, spices, sweet onions, and garlic? Simmer it with vegetable broth instead of chicken and everyone, no matter what their eating proclivities, will enjoy it.”

There is nothing like a good tomato soup to provide comfort from a cold winter like the one we’ve been having. And this recipe is just great. However, if you are short on time or weary about cooking the soup from scratch, make your favorite prepared tomato soup and just prepare the Basil Yogurt Cream to add to it – it will take even the most bland tomato soup and raise it to a new level.
