Munchie Mondays…

This weeks blog is in anticipation of the up and hopefully coming tomato crop. I have to admit, between the weather and the deer this year, I am keeping my fingers crossed that my crop even exists…

But if it does, I will for sure make this soup, it is totally delicious and doesn’t even compare to canned tomato soup.

Tomato Soup:

In a large saucepan saute 2 medium size coarsely chopped onions and 2 crushed cloves of garlic in 1/4 cup butter until onion is tender.


  •  4 pounds peeled, seeded (I leave the seeds in mine) and coarsely chopped, very ripe tomatoes.
  • 6 cups chicken broth,
  • 4 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp coarse pepper

Simmer, stirring occasionally, 15 minutes or until slightly thickened.

Remove from heat, cool slightly. Puree in food processor or blender, return to saucepan. Stir in 1/3 cup chopped fresh basil, heat gently.  Serve hot!!

Have a wonderful Monday my friends…

  1. I LOVE home-grown vine ripened tomatoes! I don’t think I could ever make this one, RNP (even if I could cook)! All the ingredients would be in my stomach before I had out all the kitchen ‘stuff’! :)


  2. I am not a big fan of tomatoes, but the fact that this soup has chicken broth in it is intriguing enough to make me try it. I’ve never heard of that before!
