No matter what time of year it is tomato soup always seems like a great idea, especially with a juicy shrimp and cheesy toast point atop it. This savory tomato soup is so rich and hearty, the shrimp cheese toast barely makes a dent in the surface of the soup. Because this is a chunky soup, it does not require straining, which cuts the prep time. The crispy toast point and sweetness of the shrimp is a perfect medley of flavors, all in a single bite.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a large pot, sauté onion in butter until translucent. Add celery and carrots and cook until tender. Alternate adding broth and flour a little at a time.
  2. Mash chicken bouillon cube and stir in. Add tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar, salt and pepper. Simmer until soup thickens. Do not boil. Stir vigorously.
  3. While soup is cooking, salt and sauté shrimp in butter until cooked, when shrimp is no longer transparent.
  4. Slice bread thinly, first horizontally and then vertically to create toast points. Brush with butter and broil in oven – do not brown toast points.
  5. Remove toast points, add a slice to cheese and return to broiler to melt. Slice shrimp horizontally and set aside.
  6. Ladle soup into bowls and top with cheesy toast points topped with sliced shrimp. Serve immediately.
