I feel kinda funny calling this a recipe because it’s so dead easy. But I’ve made it three times, and every time, Dave exclaims about how delicious it is. Seems worth sharing.
The first time I made it, we’d just returned from Prague, along with the head colds we picked up on the airplane. I really wanted soup, but thought I didn’t have anything in the house to make some. I walked out of the kitchen forlornly, and Dave said, “I bet you’ll think of something.”
A few minutes later, I was back in the kitchen grabbing ingredients.
10-Minute Pizza Soup
Makes two generous servings.
1 teaspoon cooking fat
4 Italian sausage links, cut into coins
1 (14.5 ounce) can chopped tomatoes (I like Muir Glen fire-roasted.)
1 tablespoon Homemade Pizza Seasoning
half bag frozen chopped broccoli
3 cups broth (I like to use half beef, half chicken.)
1. Heat a soup pot over medium-high heat and allow the fat to melt. Add the sausage coins to the pot and cook until browned.
2. Add the canned tomatoes and the pizza seasoning. Stir to combine. Pour in the broth, then add the broccoli. It can be frozen or defrosted; doesn’t matter.
3. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 10 minutes.
4. Ladle into deep bowls, then drizzle with a teaspoon of high-quality olive oil and a sprinkle of black pepper. Mange!
The small print:
Yes, you can make it with fresh broccoli and/or tomatoes, but then it’s not 10-minute soup ’cause of the chopping. Yes, you can use other kinds of meat or sausage. If you have some sliced mushrooms around, toss those in while browning the sausage = yum!
