How to Make Creamy Heirloom Tomato Soup
- The first time I made this soup was last fall when the weather was turning brisk. I made it with tomatoes that I had frozen in the summer. When my husband tasted it, he said it was a tomato soup that you would get in a five star restaurant. I made it again today with fresh tomatoes, it was lovely and full of flavor.
- All I have now is the meat of the tomato. At this point you can continue to make soup, or freeze the tomatoes for later use. For freezing, just put them in a freezer bag and label them and into the freezer they go to use in the winter for soups, stews or sauce. I froze all my tomatoes last year using this method. But we are making soup so...
- Next add the milk, and cook until it comes up in temperature before you add it to the tomatoes. Then warm it up and tweak the soup to your liking. if it's to thick , add some milk, if you want more herbs or spices, add them. If your tomatoes don't have the tomato flavor you hoped for, add a little tomato paste to the soup.
This soup is delicious with or with out a bread bowl. If your using frozen tomatoes, this recipe comes together from start to finish in about 20 minutes. If you prepare your fresh tomatoes ahead of time and make the soup, your still only looking at 20 minutes. This is a delicious, creamy, rich , flavorful soup that you will love. Enjoy!
