Homemade “thick & creamy” Tomato Soup

tomato soup

Baby it’s cold outside. We have had a cold front blow in the last few days. When I say blow, it literally has blown cold, cold air since Sunday. We have got some snow and rain with it. Now it’s pretty much ice. Yesterday I decided this cold weather called for a warm soup for dinner. I have been wanting to come up with a good homemade tomato soup for quite some time now. I think I nailed it with this great soup. I love tomato soup, but how much better is homemade tomato soup?? Seriously so much better, trust me. Hope you all enjoy too with the cold weather.

 


8 medium sized tomatoes, halved

2 carrots, peeled & diced

3 celery stalks, diced

1 yellow onion, chopped

5 garlic cloves, halved

2 ( 8 oz) cans of tomato sauce

1/2 c of heavy cream

2 dabs of butter

2 T of dried basil

2 t paprika

4 c. chicken broth

dash of ground thyme

salt & pepper

Puree tomatoes and set aside. Saute onions, garlic, carrots and celery with a little olive oil, until tender. Now puree those veggies, and mix in a large pot with pureed tomatoes. Add chicken broth, cream, salt, pepper, paprika, thyme and butter. Bring to a boil. Add two cans of tomato sauce, and cook soup until thickened. Serve hot with a grilled cheese sandwich.

  • This sounds amazing! The best part is no wheat flour. Hard to believe but every single can of tomato soup that I’ve found in the stores and even most recipes contain flour. My daughter has celiac and cant eat wheat. Definitely going to make this next week. Would love for you to stop by https://diyhshp.blogspot.com and link up to my More the Merrier Monday party!
