Now that the holidays are over and we are well into the winter season here in Colorado, I am devouring all of the classic comfort foods… but with a fun twist!
This combination is a direct result of watching wayyyy too many episodes of Cutthroat Kitchen, Iron Chef Showdown, and reading about all the different cuisines I’m going to experience when I hit Japan.
I swear, these shows give me the BEST ideas to upgrade the classic recipes I know and love.
I have been craving anything and everything Asian lately (it’s totally my comfort food), but for some reason the grilled cheese and tomato soup combination has been rising to the top of my comfort dinner list.
So why not throw them both together in the best grilled cheese and tomato soup combination ever?
The kimchi in the grilled cheese brings tangy and spicy flavors to the rich and simple grilled cheese that you could never imagine. But the kimchi doesn’t overpower the sandwich! That’s where the creamy avocado comes in to give an added depth of texture and flavor to every single bite.
However, it’s when you dip that sandwich into the Thai spiced tomato soup that everything comes together in a glorious way.
The soup is filled with red curry paste, lemongrass, coconut milk, and other spices to make this soup anything but ordinary. The aroma is intoxicating and as soon as you take your first slurp, you will never want to enjoy tomato soup any other way.
It’s creamy. It’s flavorful. It’s THE comforting meal of the winter this year.
So what are you waiting for?! Time to DIG IN.
