I originally posted this creamy tomato soup recipe with photos that made it look like a pink hot mess. I’m excited to day be sharing better photos, that acutally make this soup look as good as it is. AND IT IS GOOD!!
Last week I made this YUMMY tomato soup. It was easy and so delicious. I adapted the recipe from
More of America’s Most Wanted Recipes
I made it a lighter version
You will need:
5 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
4 cups whole milk
1/2 bay leaf
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
two 15 oz can peeled whole tomatoes, crushed with juice
1. in a stockpot, heat the oil and saute the onion, stirring so the onions don’t brown. Whisk in the flour and stir constantly until the paste is smooth. 1 or 2 minutes.
2. Gradually add the milk , then all the seasonings. (except the baking soda) Simmer until it thickens
3. Stir the baking soda into the tomatoes and add to the soup. Simmer for a couple of minutes to let the flavors blend. Remove the bay leaf, and puree the soup in a blender ( I had to to only half at a time). Reheat and serve warm.
this is what it looks like pre-blended… pretty milky… you need to puree it to bring out the tomato flavor and color.
Even my boys loved it!!!
