I found this in a cookbook from Neiman Marcus (Pure & Simple) at garage sale. This is by-far the BEST summer/fall fresh veggies-from-your-garden soup I have ever tried! Hope u enjoy too.

Directions Step-By-Step

Melt butter in soup/dutch pot. Add onions & carrots , cook 5 miniutes. Add potaotes, stir briefly. Add chicken broth.
At this point, you can do the extra work of blanching & removing skins on the tomatoes but I find it is not worth it. I roughly chop the tomatoes & add, skin & all.
Simmer 1 hour. **This is the point you can cool & freeze if you would like to. Once milk is added in the next step, it will NOT freeze well**
Add basil, salt & pepper & milk. Heat 5 minutes & enjoy!
