This is adapted from the cafeteria at work. It was written in food service quantities and I hope I've scaled it down properly, since I loosely measure the ingredients when I make it. The onion, bay leaf and clove make the kitchen smell especially good on a cold or rainy night. If you have ground bay leaf, use it, but simmering a whole leaf is fine too. This soup is great with grilled/toasted cheese sandwiches. You might be tempted to substitute lowfat or nonfat dairy products, but it will definitely be less tasty.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in a medium saucepan, add onion, brown sugar and saute until translucent; add condensed tomato soup and spices (except chives); simmer for 20 minutes.
  2. Add milk and cream; heat gently. Once heated, if bay leaf was used, remove. Just before serving, add chives. Serve hot with extra freshly ground pepper (to taste).
