If you’re often visiting Primavera Kitchen you know that I always like to make homemade recipes and almost everything from scratch. I believe that when you make your own food you can control the amount of ingredients in there for example. But life gets crazy sometimes. We all have moments that we don’t have much time left to cook. When I had my son a year ago, I have to confess that sometimes we had to turn to packaged options at our local grocery store. I was so tired of not sleeping and since my family doesn’t live in Canada and my husband works fulltime, I was alone to taking care of my baby, my home, my blog and so on.
But it’s awesome that nowadays there are lots of good quality meals sold everywhere. A good example of what I’m talking about is the line from Campbell’s called Campbell’s Everyday Gourmet Soups. They are premium soups that are made with no artificial colours or flavours, which is really important for me.
On top of all that these soups taste absolutely amazing. Really! I’m not even kidding! They have unique flavour combinations like Thai Tomato Coconut, Sweet Potato Tomatillo and Fire Roasted Sweet Pepper & Tomato to please everyone. I tried the Tomato Basil Bisque few days ago and I was pretty surprised by the taste and the rich texture of it. Of course I always want to bring some freshness to my meals, so I added some garnish. For this soup I decided to sauté some green onions and garlic and top it with some crispy bacon bites. Mm… It turns something good into something even better. I also added some sour cream on it and it brought another layer of flavor to this soup. All these garnishes went along so well and accentuated and elevated even more the flavor of the Campbell’s Everyday Gourmet soups Gourmet Tomato Basil Bisque soup. I’m sure you will Elevate Your Everyday with this soup on its own, but adding these garnishes that I’m suggesting, will taste even better. If you have some Homemade Basil Pesto, you can stir some in as well! Tomato and basil go so well together, like in my Spaghetti Squash with Sun dried Tomato and Basil.
