Garden Fresh Tomato Soup

Cindy Steflik


I found this recipe at Tweaks I made:
1) I used low sodium chicken broth
2) I used 1/8 tsp ground cloves instead of the 4 whole cloves. We found this to be just the right amount of clove flavor for us.
3) I did not make the roux but I did add the 2 T. butter at the end along with about 3/4 cup heavy cream as we prefer cream of tomato soup.
It was delicious! It made about 6 cups total. We had enough to freeze for a cold winter's meal.
