Recipe Series Part 3 - Tomato Soup
1 stick of butter
2 medium onions chopped
2 cloves of garlic chopped
3 cups chicken stock
1 28 oz. can of whole peeled tomatoes
salt & pepper
Melt butter in heavy soup pot. Add onions and garlic and cook until soft. Add stock and whole can of tomatoes and their juices. Bring to a boil and let simmer as long as you can. Add salt & pepper to taste.
In batches puree the life out of it in a blender. (Remember to take the tiny cup out of the blender lid and cover with a towel and your hand-so the heat doesn't make it explode!)
You can add some cream if you'd like but it is not necessary.
Serve with cheese, croutons, sour cream, chives.....whatever you like!
This soup is about $5 to make and yeilds quite a bit...enough for a family of 4 for sure!
