Thanks for sharing this recipe Susan. Sorry I have been so slack in posting recipes. I got behind when we were sick and now our computer is sick. ~ Pam
Yum! This is a great from-scratch version of tomato soup. We had ours served hot with some slices of bacon and grilled cheese sandwiches. Very scrumptious! My husband gave this a 5 out of 5 for soups, and he's sort of particular about his soups, so that's high praise. This has a more subtle tomato flavor than the regular tomato soup you'd buy in condensed form, which means I like it better. Definitely recommended! Also, it's very easy to make.
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 onion, chopped
3 tablespoons flour
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
dash of garlic powder, basil, oregano, thyme (or just use a teaspoon or so of Italian seasoning)
2 cups tomato juice
2 cups milk
Saute the onion in butter. Whisk in the flour, sugar, and salt. Season with assorted spices. Remove from heat. Stir in 2 cups tomato juice. Bring to boil, stirring constantly. Add 2 cups of milk. Return to heat, and heat to desired temperature, making sure not to scald.
