Remember earlier this year, when you stocked your pantry and printed out recipes and planned your meals and decided to cook responsibly, virtuously, and nobly in 2014? This is what you're going to do.
Tonight, or any night this week, or for lunch, or for a late night snack, you will turn to your newly-stocked pantry. You will take out a can of tomatoes. You will turn on your stove. And, with three ingredients — or more, if you so choose — you will have a bowl of steaming happiness in front of you, a bowl to cradle on your lap as you watch Downton Abbey, or to dunk a grilled cheese in, or to pair with a fabulous main course that you had meticulously planned out (because you obviously did that, right?). Here's how to make tomato soup your savior this year.
