cream of tomato soup

Happy Fall! The last of my tomatoes were picked over the weekend. For the ripe ones, I found an easy to make and delicious cream of tomato soup recipe on Epicurious. If you are a fan of tomato soup, I highly recommend it. The recipe produced a heavenly flavor with a mild sweetness behind the tomatoes and sauteed onions. I made a few tweaks to the recipe by cutting the amount of cream/milk and adding more chicken stock; adding more onions; and blending the soup so that it was less of a stew and more of a soup. The result…happy me and happy boyfriend plus dinner for tomorrow!

5 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup chopped onion
4 tablespoons flour
2 cups milk
2 cups chicken stock
1/2 bay leaf
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3 cups tomatoes, chopped

Easy Directions:
Melt butter then add onion in a large pot until onion is soft (not browned though). Add flour, milk, chicken stock, bay leaf, sugar, and salt to pot and stir occassionally. In a seperate bowl combine baking soda to tomatoes and mix. Add tomato mixture to the pot with the other ingredients. Stir together. Last, blend the soup in batches so that consistency is smooth. Enjoy!
