TOMATO SOUP

Rich and creamy tomato soup recipe! 

Ingredients

  • 4 cups of chopped fresh tomatoes
  • 1 slice of onion
  • 4 whole cloves
  • 2 cups of chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp of butter
  • 2 tbsp of all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 2 tsp of white sugar, or to taste

Direction

  1. In a stockpot,  combine the tomatoes, onion, cloves and chicken broth over medium heat. Bring to a boil, and gently boil for about 20 minutes to blend all of the flavors.
  2. Remove from heat and run the mixture through a strainer into a large bowl, or pan. Discard any stuff leftover in the strainer.
  3. In the now-empty stockpot, melt the butter over medium heat and stir in flour to make a roux. Cook until the roux is medium brown.
  4. Gradually whisk in a bit of the tomato mixture, so that no lumps form, then stir in the rest. Season with sugar and salt, and adjust to taste.
