Family Favorites

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're all set. Healthy, fresh and easy... my kind of recipe.

How to Make Rustic Farm-Fresh Tomato Soup

Step-by-Step

  1. Roughly chop and seed 4 cups of tomatoes. In large pot, combine tomatoes, chopped onion and chicken broth. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for 20-25 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat. Add tomato sauce, salt, pepper and sugar. Using an immersion blender, blend to desired consistency.
  3. 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.
  4. 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 tsps. seems to work for us. Adjust to your own preference. Serve.
  5. For variety, add garlic powder or Italian seasoning.
    Serve with rustic croutons, green onion tops and/or shredded parmesan.
