Stages of cooking

  1. In a stockpot, over medium heat, combine the tomatoes, large slice of onion, garlic cloves, and chicken broth. Bring to a boil, and gently boil for about 20 minutes to blend all of the flavors. Remove from heat and run the mixture through a food mill into a large bowl, or pan. Discard any stuff left over in the food mill.

  2. In the now empty stockpot, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the flour to make a roux, cooking until the roux is a medium brown. Gradually whisk in a bit of the tomato mixture, so that no lumps form, then stir in the rest. Season with sugar and salt, and adjust to taste.

History of the Fresh Tomato Soup

Tomato soup has been around since the 18th century, but fresh tomato soup is a relatively new invention. Canned tomato soup was popularized by the Campbell's Soup Company in the early 20th century. However, with the increase in farmers' markets and home gardens, fresh tomato soup has become a popular summertime recipe.

Tips and Tricks for Fresh Tomato Soup Recipe

Fresh tomatoes are key to this recipe, but if they are not in season or unavailable, canned tomatoes can be used as a substitute. Be sure to remove the onion slice before blending the mixture to avoid any unwanted chunks.

To make the roux, it is important to stir constantly to prevent burning. Gradually whisking in the tomato mixture will also help prevent lumps.

If you prefer a creamier soup, heavy cream or half and half can be added to the soup before serving.

Tips for presenting the dish

Fresh tomato soup can be served hot or cold, depending on your preference. Garnish with fresh herbs or croutons for added flavor and texture. This soup can also be paired with a grilled cheese sandwich, a classic combination. Serve in a colorful soup bowl to add to the presentation.

How to Freeze Tomato Soup

This recipe makes six servings, so if you need to freeze leftovers, that's okay! Simply ladle individual portions of (completely cooled) tomato soup into zip-top bags and squeeze out the excess air. Label and date them, then freeze for up to three months.
