End of Summer Tomato Soup

I know it may not look pretty, but it tasted amazing and was really easy.  I also loved that it used a ton of fresh produce that we had around the house. There is no official recipe, but here is what I did.
  • Chop 1 onion and 3 cloves garlic.
  • Saute in large pot with olive oil until very soft.
  • While that is cooking, cut as many tomatoes, red or green that you have on hand. I used all of the tomatoes that you see in this picture.
  • Add all of the tomatoes and their juice to the pot.
  • I added about 1 1/2 cups of corn chowder because that is what I had on hand that needed to be used. I think that vegetable or chicken broth would also taste great.
  • Turn the heat fairly low and let the mixture simmer on the stove. 
  • While it is simmering, cut up any veggies that you have on hand.  I added a few carrots, some celery sticks, a bit of yellow squash, some zucchini squash, a bit of broccoli stalk, and a can of corn.
  • Liberally sprinkle cumin and stir.
  • Salt and Pepper to taste.
  • Let the mixture simmer until the veggies are the texture that you would like to eat them at.
  • Serve with Andrew's fresh made onion and garlic bread because it's the best.
