Zippy Tomato Soup

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by velorutionista

Possibly the easiest tomato soup you'll every make! And it's no slouch in the taste department, either, with a sweet smokiness from the roasted tomatoes and paprika. Perfect served with a dollop of sour cream or a grilled cheese sandwich. This is a very forgiving recipe, so feel free to spice it to your preferences or substitute for the ingredients you have on hand! I do suggest you use Muir Glen Fire Roasted Crushed Tomatoes because they give the soup a great depth of flavor and a hint of smokiness, but any brand crushed tomatoes would do in a pinch (just don't use diced tomatoes, or the soup will be watery).
