Cape Fear Cooking: Get Cozy With This Simple Soup Recipe
WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - As the weather slowly starts to warm, there are still cold days ahead in the forecast. And with those chilly days, nothing soothes the soul better than a warm bowl of soup...especially when it is this easy to make.
Chef Gwen Gulliksen from the GLOW Academy of Wilmington stopped by the WECT Kitchen to share one of her personal favorites, a “Cream of Tomato Soup” recipe. Of course when making tomato soup, go ahead and put together a grilled cheese sandwich or crusty piece of bread to sop up all the flavors. Enjoy!
