Caprese Soup

You all know that I looovvee soup! One soup that I have always really wanted to like is french onion soup. But you know that I do not like onions so I don't eat french onion soup. I saw this recipe for caprese soup recently and thought, now there is an idea! A way for me to enjoy the yummy, cheesy goodness of the french onion soup in a way that I would like. I knew I had to try this.

My parents have been bringing out loads of my stuff from all my years and home and college, everytime they come out. In one of the boxes I came across the soup crocks that you see in the picture. I was super excited about them. I know they are generally used for french onion soup, so I knew I would have to use them for this recipe. I was excited to use them what they are made for!

This soup was really good. And actually pretty filling. Soups can sometimes not be so filling for me anyway. This was also really easy and quick to make because you can use pre-made ingredients  I really enjoyed this new twist on an old favorite. 

Caprese Soup

Tomato soup (use your favorite variety)
Prepared Basil Pesto
French Bread, sliced into 1/2 inch pieces
Buffalo Mozzarella, sliced into 1/4 inch pieces
Olive oil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Heat up your favorite tomato soup over medium heat. 

Place sliced bread on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and bake 7 minutes or until bread is toasty. 

Once bread is done spread each slice with pesto. Top each slice with a piece of mozzarella.

Flip oven over to broil.

Pour prepared tomato soup into oven proof crocks or bowls. 

Place 2 to 3 cheese topped bread slices in each crock.

Broil for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly. 


  1. I am right there with you having all of these cookbooks and not using them. This recipe looks delicious. Some of my favorite flavors.

  2. I know onions don't agree with a lot of people, but it is really wonderful to have cheesy topped bread on soup. This is a great alternative recipe. Thank you for sharing it on foodie friday.

  3. WOW - THIS looks AWESOME! I love French Onion soup, but this looks like a fabulous alternative.

  4. Love the soup crocks and your soup looks delicious! I have lots of cookbooks I've never cooked from too! Need to get better about that.
