I am so excited for my first Secret Recipe Club Reveal! For those of you that aren’t familar with the SRC, it’s a group of bloggers interested in sharing recipes from other bloggers. We are all assigned a different blog, we pick a recipe, make it and write a post about it. On an assigned day during the month we do a “reveal” day and show off our recipes. The SRC community has been amazing, and I’ve been loving checking out the blogs of all the SRC members!
I was assigned to Beth from It’s Good to Be The Cook. I loved poking around her site and reading more about her. The restaurant tab really stuck out– Beth is from Philly, and I will be going there this weekend to see friends. We will definitely be going to one of her recommended restaurants
When I saw her Creamy Tomato Balsamic Soup, I knew this was the recipe I would be making! I made very small adaptations based on what I had on hand (ex- diced tomatoes instead of whole ones), and it was so good. A great hearty soup and a play on a trusty, favorite. It’s a recipe everyone should try out!
Now, off to check out the other delicious SRC recipes!

- 1 cup chicken broth (low-sodium)
- 1 tbs brown sugar
- 3 tbs balsamic vinegar (plus more for garnish)
- 1 tbs soy sauce (low-sodium)
- 1 cup onion, chopped
- 2 tsp garlic, minced
- 3 14.5 oz cans diced tomatoes, drained
- ¾ cup skim milk
- Garnish: Black Pepper, Balsamic Vinegar, Shredded Cheese
- Servings: 6
- Difficulty: easy
Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Combine ½ cup broth, sugar, vinegar, and soy sauce in a small bowl.
Place onion, garlic, and tomatoes in a 13×9 inch baking pan coated with cooking spray. Pour broth mixture over the tomato mixture and bake at 500 for 40 minutes.
Place the entire tomato mixture in a blender or food processor. Add remaining ½ cup broth and half-and-half. Process until smooth.
Note: Make sure you leave the center lid off of the processor to allow steam to escape. You may want to put a paper towel lightly on the top instead to avoid splattering.
Garnish with a few drops of balsamic, cheese, and black pepper if desired.
