HOMEMADE TOMATO BASIL SOUP


TOMATO CLOSE

   There is nothing better than comin home, on a chilly night and having a nice bowl of tomato soup with a crusty bread  or a grilled cheese sandwich …mmmmmm! Oops, back to the recipe lol. This recipe is one that I make all the time, and since I have been preggers I have been craving veggies, fruit and starch! So saturday I decided to make homemade Tomato and Basil soup! I served it with already made mini french baguettes, because I’m 8 months pregnant I dont have time or the ankles to stand a make bread right now! LoL! The recipe is fairly easy and all you need are  tomatoes, onions, garlic and basil! If you want creamy tomato soup I will also list how much you will need in the recipe, but the soup pictured is a basic soup no cream added!    ENJOY!!!!!! 

INGREDIENTS

4 cups chopped fresh tomatoes, (WE USED 4 BEEFSTEAK TOMATOES)

1 large onion, chunks

4 whole cloves

2 cups chicken broth

2 tablespoons butter

1 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons white sugar, or to taste

2 teaspoons basil, thinly chopped

1 cup heavy cream (optional for a creamy soup)

 

DIRECTIONS

  •  In a large saucepan, combine the tomatoes, vegetables, and chicken broth.
  • Bring to a boil, and cook for 30 minutes.
  • Remove from heat, and stir in the basil.
  • At this point, you may puree the soup if you wish.
  • Add the butter; return to medium-low heat, and stir until butter is melted and soup starts to thicken
  • Add the cream if you want a cream of tomato soup
  • Serve immediately. With grilled cheese sandwiches or crusty bread!

If you want a little heat…. add a bit of red pepper flakes per bowl… or 1/2 tsp for the entire pot!
