Yippee! I got a new pot this week! It is 'tri ply' like my pans, which means it combines three different metals to get the best advantages from all of them (copper, stainless steel, and aluminum). No more of the non-stick teflon coating! Actually, my old soup pot didn't have the coating either, but anything that did is officially out of my kitchen now. Using a small amount of healthy fats, like olive oil, to prevent food from sticking to your pots and pans is way better than something that the EPA says is a 'likely carcinogen'.
Any way, I made this tasty tomato based soup in my new pot and it is delish!
1 small onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp butter
.25 cup cream
1 cup milk
2 cups vegetable stock
2 cups tomato juice (or tomato paste & water)
3 tomatoes, chopped
1 package tortellini
salt & pepper
1. Melt butter in pot. Add in chopped onions and saute for two minutes. Add in garlic, salt, and pepper and let cook for another 2 minutes. Add stock, tomato juice, tomatoes, and herb; bring to a simmer.
2. After it has been simmering for three minutes, add milk and cream, bring back to a simmer. Once simmering again, add tortellini, cover, and cook for 10 minutes. Top with some shredded parm and enjoy!
My shiny new pot!
