"Better Than Campbell's" Tomato Soup

Difficulty: easy
Time: 30 minutes
Serving: 4
Gluten Free option!

9 oz of Muir Glen organic fire roasted tomato's 
1/2 c. Ground almonds OR you can use plain bread crumbs (not the italian, do not want flavor)
3 3/4 c. Chicken or vegetable stock
3 T. Butter
2/3 c. Heavy cream or milk
1 t. Sugar
Handful chopped fresh basil
Salt and pepper to taste

Blend almonds in food processor (I used a Vitamix) until finely ground, add tomato's, butter, sugar and 1/2 c. stock and blend until smooth.  Pour soup into a pot and put stove on low*.  Add the rest of the ingredients and cook on low until heated through.  Top with fresh basil and a grilled cheese sandwich on the side!

*Make sure to not have the stove any higher than a low setting or it will cause the milk to curdle.
