We have been going crazy lately over my tomato soup, which, if you know me, you know I have kinda hated tomatoes with all of my being for all of ever. Tastes seem to be changing though and this soup doesn’t have that acrid, acidic tomato taste I have disliked for so long.

  • Saute 1 chopped onion, 3 chopped celery stalks, 2 chopped carrots and 1 half chopped pepper in 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of olive oil for 5-10 minutes
  • Add 3-4 cups of vegetable or chicken stock to your veggies  (we make our own) and simmer for 10 minutes – add 1 teaspoon dried basil in this step too
  • Add your 6 pound can of whole skinned tomatoes including the juice (Costco! $2.50!) and continue to simmer for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally
  • Taking an immersion blender puree your soup. Salt & pepper to taste
  • We add 1/4 cup of sour cream to the mix and then finish it off with 1 tablespoon of sugar and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda mixed with 2 tablespoons of water (to cut the acidity)
  • Top with chopped green onion and perhaps a little grated parm and serve!

It’s just so good….makes a big batch for 2 but can also be frozen if you aren’t going to make it through!

    Just discovered this lovely blogness. We cook from scratch in our house too. We live for leftovers.

  3. I’m not fond of tomatoes either, but I find I can eat the yellow or orange ones without breaking out or getting sore spots from the acid on my tongue. Your recipe sounds delicious, so I’m definitely giving it a try, but will use fresh tomatoes from my garden and just cook it a bit longer. Thanks for sharing. Looks terrific!
