Tangy Herbed Tomato Soup

Total Time

This one has a nice zippy flavor. By all means, use fresh tomatoes if you have nice ripe ones. Use about 8 large, peeled and cut up, in place of the canned.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in a soup pot.
  2. Add oil, onion, and herbs and cook on medium, stirring, until onion starts to brown.
  3. Add all the tomatoes and the tomato paste and simmer about 10 minutes.
  4. Blend flour with 1/2 cup of the chicken stock to make a slurry.
  5. Add to tomato mixture, stirring.

  7. Bring soup to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer about 25 minutes.
  8. Stir frequently to prevent scorching.
  9. Puree soup in batches in blender.
  10. Season to taste with salt, pepper and sugar.
  11. Reheat to serving temperature.

This was totally awesome! It was easy, and tasted delicious. I did make a roux instead of making a slurry, but other than that followed the recipe. I also used my immersion blender, which made this soup a snap. We will definitely be making this again, thanks for posting.

We absolutely LOVED this soup!! It was so delicious and tasted garden-fresh even with snow on the ground. It went together easily and was great with a BLT. The one thing I didn't do is drain my tomatoes - but it was still a creamy, thick consitency. We will make this again and again and again. Thanks graffeetee :)
