Creamy Tomato Basil soup

Hello Readers,

Rainy, cold Monday we are having in Massachusetts today, so I thought today would be a great day to share my creamy tomato basil soup recipe! This dish was made for a private chef client whom I made a 3 course meal for their anniversary. This soup was the first course but , can easily be made into a main course especially if served with a yummy grilled cheese.


Creamy tomato basil soup perfect with a grilled cheese!

To make this soup you will need:

  • 24 oz crushed tomato
  • 14 fresh basil leaves
  • 16 oz of heavy cream( cashew or coconut milk are great alternatives)
  • 3 celery stalks
  • 1 large carrot
  • half of a yellow onion
  • half a stick of salted butter
  • salt and pepper to taste.
  • 2 Large soup pots
  • 2 dried bay leaves
  • blender
  1. Rough chop all vegetables
  2. In a large soup pot, melt butter and sauté onions
  3. Next add chopped carrot and celery, cover pot and sweat for about 5 mins.
  4. Add in crushed tomato, and bay leaves. Season with salt and pepper simmer for 20 mins
  5. Remove bay leaves and save for later
  6. Pour soup into blender add a 1/4 cup of heavy cream and chopped basil leaves (or alternative)
  7. Note you may need to do this in multiple steps so have a second soup pot ready to pour blended soup into.
  8. Repeat step 6 until all of your soup is blended.
  9. Return soup to burner, add in used bay leaves and cook on low for another 10 mins. Taste and season accordingly
  10. Serve hot! Can be stored up to 4 days in refrigerator.

Beef Bourguignon

Hello Readers,

Today I am sharing with you an image from a recent private chef client I had. I love creating special moments in people’s homes during occasions like anniversaries, baby showers, brunches and many more!

The entre for this client was beef bourguignon ( or beef burgundy). This dish is warm, tender and very hearty. Ingredients include white mushroom, carrot, onion, celery, fingerling potato, red wine, and a bottom round roast of certified angus beef.

Chicken Piccata

Recently I have had many orders of the classic chicken piccata. This dish is lemony and bright, perfect for bringing to a party or for dinner. It is pretty fast and can be done in about an hour. I decided to share the recipe with you!


Here is a finished chicken piccata for a recent meal prep customer.

MEP

  • Chicken breast
  • Flour
  • Salt/pepper
  • Lemons
  • White wine
  • Capers
  • Parsley
  • Olive oil
  • Butter
  • Chicken stock

MOP

  1. Zest and cut lemons.
  2. Slice chicken breast into thin pieces or save some time and buy already sliced chicken cutlets.
  3. Season chicken with salt and pepper both sides
  4. Pour 1 cup of flour into a bowl and season flour with salt and pepper
  5. In a sauté pan pour about 1 tbsp on olive oil and a half tbsp (1/2tbsp) of butter. Turn heat to medium high.
  6. Take the sliced chicken breast and coat both sides in flour.
  7. Once the butter is melted and the oil butter mixture is hot (about 2 to 3 min) place chicken in the pan and cook for 4 mins on each side flipping only once.
  8. Repeat this step until all the chicken is cooked adding more olive oil and butter between cooking raw chicken.
  9. Once completed cooking the chicken, add about 2 to 4tbsp of flour to the hot pan and make a roux. Make sure the flour soaks up all the oil and butter from the pan.

  12. Next add in 1 cup of white wine and the juice of 2 lemons.
