Directions

  1. Heat olive oil in a soup pot over medium heat, stir in onion. Cook and stir until golden brown, about 12 minutes; season with salt, black pepper, dried basil, dried oregano, and dried thyme. Cook until dried herbs are fragrant, about 1 more minute, then mix in the tomatoes and vermouth. Bring to a boil, then stir in the chicken broth. Bring soup back to a boil, and reduce heat to a simmer. Mix in the fresh basil, oregano, thyme, and garlic. Cover pot, and cook until tomatoes are tender, about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Sprinkle cinnamon over the soup, and ladle into bowls; top each serving with a spoonful of crumbled Gorgonzola cheese.

Whether this is a 3 or 4 (meaning 5) star recipe depends on who you want to believe, me or Hubs. Here's my 3-star take - this did NOT trip my trigger. It reminded me of a can of diced tomatoes (even tho' I did use fresh) with a boatload of herbs added. That's it... tomatoes and herbs. Moreover, I just didn't see topping this with gorgonzola and adding the cinnamon wasn't even a viable option. Gorgonzola and cinnamon? Three stars, I say - and that's withOUT the cinnamon and gorgonzola. At least Hubs agreed with me on that much anyway - no way was I going to serve him a bowl of soup with cinnamon and gorgonzola in it. "Thank you," he said. But he LOVED the soup, rating it 4 stars which, for anyone else, would mean 5. He said that most often tomato soups are pureed and include cream; that this was interesting and different for its chunkiness and herbiness. In the end, it doesn't matter what it's rated, really. It's a matter of description and individual tastes, pure and simple.

This is delicious a great way to use fresh tomatoes. I revised it a little by letting it cool and then pureeing it. Then I rewarmed it and added about 1/2 cup to a little more heavy cream. Served it topped with grated parmesan cheese. It was very good before I changed it, but great after.
