Rustic Farmfresh Tomato Soup Recipe @pinch

When tomatoes are ripe and plentiful, this is a fabulous rustic tomato soup. It is creamy and savory with a touch of sweetness. The rich tomato flavor is enhanced by the onions that cook down with them. Serve alongside grilled cheese for a little comfort food. Once you try this tomato soup, you will never want it from the can again. If you don't have an immersion blender, a food processor or blender will work as well (just be careful with the hot liquid). In late summer, when tomatoes are abundant, I love to make this fresh tomato soup with our family farm tomatoes and just a handful of everyday ingredients. Add a grilled cheese sandwich and you are all set. Healthy, fresh, and easy... my kind of recipe.

Recipe Cuisine: American Recipe Category: Vegetable Soup Yield: 6 Servings
Ingredients :
  • 4 cup(s) very ripe tomatoes, I used a mixture of varieties, roughly chopped and seeded
  • 1 medium or large onion, chopped
  • 2 cup(s) chicken broth (I like to use Better Than Bouillon)
  • 1 can(s) tomato sauce (8 oz)
  • 2 tablespoon(s) butter
  • 2 tablespoon(s) all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon(s) salt, or to taste
  • 3 teaspoon(s) sugar, or to taste
  • 1/2 - 3/4 teaspoon(s) freshly cracked pepper, or to taste
  • optional - garlic powder, Italian seasoning, croutons, green onion tops, shredded Parmesan cheese
Intructions :
  • Roughly chop and seed 4 cups of tomatoes. In a large pot, combine tomatoes, chopped onion, and chicken broth
  • Bring mixture to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for 20-25 minutes
  • Remove from heat. Add tomato sauce, salt, pepper, and sugar
  • Using an immersion blender, blend to desired consistency
  • To remove any remaining seeds or skin, pour cooled soup through a colander and into a large bowl. Stir or push through with the back of a large spoon
  • Wipe out soup kettle and melt butter. Add flour and cook for 1-2 minutes until it begins to become golden
  • Add a ladleful of soup to the butter/flour mixture and blend
  • Then, add the rest of the tomato soup mixture and stir. Heat to a low simmer. Check salt, pepper, and sugar and adjust to taste. All tomatoes have different sugar content. 3-4 teaspoons seem to work for us. Adjust to your own preference. Serve
  • For variety, add garlic powder or Italian seasoning. Serve with rustic croutons, green onion tops, and/or shredded Parmesan.
