Last week, Aaron made two wonderful soups. The first was a tomato soup. It was absolutely wonderful. I had asked Aaron to make tomato soup. I was planning on just pureeing a can of Italian diced tomatoes and heating that up. But Aaron found a recipe on line that was slightly more involved and a hundred times better.
So, here is the recipe as found online with our changes in the parentheses.
Creamy Tomato Soup
4c chopped tomatoes (2 cans diced tomatoes. We used one regular and one Italian)
1 sliced onion
4 whole cloves (minced garlic)
2c chicken broth
2t white sugar
In a pot over medium heat, add tomatoes, onion, garlic, and chicken broth. Simmer for 20 minutes. Remove the tomato mixture and put through a food mill. (We pureed it in the blender and then ran it through a fine mesh sieve to remove the chunks).
In the empty pot melt the butter. Add flour and mix until a light brown. Slowly add the tomato puree into the pot. Season with salt and sugar.
