DIRECTIONS

  • Spray a 5-qt heavy soup pot with nonstick cooking spray. In it, melt butter over medium heat and add onion. Saute until it starts to softened, about 3 minutes. Turn heat down slightly and add garlic, basil, honey and cloves. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes.
  • Add tomatoes and raise heat to medium-high. Cook to evaporate moisture, stirring constantly, 5 to 10 minutes. Add orange zest. Lower heat and simmer about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove pot from heat. Let cool slightly, pick out the cloves and add the orange juice. Process in batches in a food processor. Put the puree through a food mill or strainer.
  • Return puree to soup pot. Reheat over medium-low heat, stirring often. Season with salt and pepper and stir in tomato paste.
  • When soup is hot, just before serving, stir in cream and cognac-DO NOT BOIL!
  • Serve at once, garnished with sour cream if desired.
