Tomato Soup, Whistler Style

Several years ago my sister, my cousin and I spent a weekend in beautiful Whistler BC.
  We had lunch in a small sandwich place in the Village and enjoyed this soup. 
 Here is my version of it.
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup sliced celery
  • 1 cup finely sliced cabbage
  • 1 clove garlic, minced 
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil or 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 can tomato soup undiluted
  • 1 can water
  • 1 can milk
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • freshly ground pepper
  • sour cream for garnish (opt.)
  1. Heat oil in a frying pan and add onion and celery.
  2. Saute' for a few minutes and then add cabbage and garlic.
  3. Continue to cook and stir for another 5-8 minutes until cabbage is wilted but still has some crunch left.
  4. Place vegetables into a pot and add remaining ingredients.
  5. Bring to a boil and let it simmer until the flavours come together, another 5-10 minutes.


  1. I just love soup. Thanks for another great recipe. I will be trying this one, especially since we are still in a deep freeze here. This would hit the spot.

  2. That soup sounds wonderful but that bread also looks tasty. Is the recipe for it also here somewhere? Thanks so much!

  3. Oh that soup looks wonderful!! And, yes, as Sherrill says - so does the roll! The addition of cabbage would add such a hearty layer of flavour! I will be making this.

  4. Mmmm I love tomato and basil soup! I'm curious what kind of roll you have next to the soup in the picture? Sounds like we agree...that looks yummy as well!

    1. That is a basil cheese biscuit and I can see I'll have to post that recipe.

  5. I'm surprised to see a can of tomato soup. Did you try other versions of 'tomato' and prefer this?


    1. I have made it from scratch but this was a quicker version and is still very good.

  6. that soup does sound tasty - but oh my that biscuit looks scrumptious - what's that recipe?

  8. The biscuit draws my attention - we tried our version because this one looked so good; recipe for these would be good...though ours were tasty too.
