Today's recipe is one you can make any time of the year. You can use fresh tomatoes from the garden, or canned ones like I did. If using fresh tomatoes be sure to cook until the tomatoes are cooked and soft.
You can also change the taste by the spices you use. I used chili powder, paprika, and cayenne pepper for a Mexican flavor. If you want an Italian taste, use oregano and basil. Just get creative. I think this soup would also taste great with some shrimp or crab added.
4 cups Tomatoes (Fresh, Canned, Whole, or Diced)
2 cups V8 Juice ( or tomato juice and celery stalk)
1 Diced Onions
3 tablespoons Real Butter
1 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons Flour
½ teaspoon Garlic
½ teaspoon Basil
1 ½ tablespoons Sugar
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of pepper
Pinch Red Pepper (Adjust all spices to taste)
Sauté onion, garlic, spices, and pepper in butter, add the flour to make a roux. Brown the flour slightly. Just cook for a minute. This gets rid of the flour taste. Add in the juice and mix to dissolve the roux. Add tomatoes. Simmer for 20 minutes. May take longer if using fresh tomatoes. Remove from heat and puree. A stick blender is the best way to do this. Return to the heat and simmer. Add sugar. Add the cream. Stir in to mix well. Do not boil once the cream and sugar have been added.
This soup is great with grilled cheese. Makes 6 servings
