Awesome Tomato Soup

This recipe for tomato soup was in today’s newsletter from my CSA. And since I picked 20 pounds of amazing tomatoes from a friend’s friend’s garden yesterday, we decided to try it out.

Tomato Soup
1 tbs butter
2 cloves garlic (minced)
2 carrots (chopped)
2 stalks celery (chopped)
2 quarts canned tomatoes (or equivalent in fresh tomatoes and water)
pinch of sugar
1/2 cup fresh basil
salt and pepper to taste
grated Parmesan cheese
Heat butter in skillet; saute garlic, carrots and celery.  Add tomatoes and simmer 20 minutes.  Add sugar, basil, salt, and pepper; simmer 5-10 minutes longer.  Top with Parmesan.  Makes 8 servings.

Tomato Soup

  • 1 tbs butter

  • 2 carrots (chopped)
  • 2 stalks celery (chopped)
  • 2 quarts canned tomatoes (or equivalent in fresh tomatoes and water)
  • pinch of sugar
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • grated Parmesan cheese

Heat butter in skillet; saute garlic, carrots and celery.  Add tomatoes and simmer 20 minutes.  Add sugar, basil, salt, and pepper; simmer 5-10 minutes longer.  Top with Parmesan.  Makes 8 servings.

Notes: I forgot to use butter and used olive oil instead (silly habits). Also, I simmered the soup much longer than it has listed here – probably 45 mins for the first phase and 15 for the second. I then removed from heat for a few minutes and pureed the soup in the vitamixer until smooth.
