Recipe by vanilla sugar
It is a cold, rainy May day. Here in VA, we ran the heat because of the chill in the air. I got caught behind in my food prep for the day and needed comfort food to feed my husband and kids. I remembered my favorite yellow tomatoes I had frozen last August. I had peeled and saved them for just such a day in the future. Normally, I would have not created my own recipe, but I wanted 'Yellow Tomato Soup.' So, all the ingredients are added with the idea to keep the soup yellow. Thick from the roux, slightly acidic, delicious, simple yet unique...... Comfort on a cold, spring day. I hope you enjoy!
