OUR FAVORITE RECIPES - GARDEN FRESH TOMATO SOUP

Cathy Mallers PhotoNow that tomatoes are in full bloom and the weather is getting a little cooler, why not try this easy to make soup.  

Prep Time:  5 minutes

Cook Time:  30 minutes

Servings:  6

INGREDIENTS

4 cups chopped fresh tomatoes

1 slice onion

4 whole cloves

2 cups chicken broth

2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons white sugar, or to taste

DIRECTIONS

In a stockpot, over medium heat, combine the tomatoes, onion, cloves and chicken broth. Bring to a boil, and gently boil for about 20 minutes to blend all of the flavors. Remove from heat and run the mixture through a food mill into a large bowl, or pan. Discard any stuff left over in the food mill.

In the now empty stockpot, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the flour to make a roux, cooking until the roux is a medium brown. Gradually whisk in a bit of the tomato mixture, so that no lumps form, then stir in the rest. Season with sugar and salt, and adjust to taste.  

Don't forget the grilled cheese sandwich!
