I got this recipe from the newspaper and wish I could remember the source. It is a delicious soup and so simple - and great with grilled cheese sandwiches! You can use milk or a lighter cream to lower the fat.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in stockpot. Add onion and cook for 5 minutes until softened.
  2. Stir in tomatoes, carrots, chicken stock, bay leaves, cinnamon stick, parsley, and thyme. Bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes until vegetables are tender.
  4. Cool soup and puree in a blender or food processor (hand blenders are best - that way you don't have to transfer the soup out of the pot).
  5. Reheat soup in pot, adding cream if desired.
  6. Season soup with salt and pepper. Serve.

Nice soup, & easy to make! Used vegetable stock & 3 tablespoons of whipping cream, along with unsalted butter & a vadalia onion! A nice blend of flavors! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's Pick-A-Chef]
