Old Fashioned Cream Of Tomato Soup
2 (32 oz.) cans diced tomatoes
1 (9 oz.) can chicken broth
2 T. unsalted butter
2 T. onion, chopped
Pinch of baking soda
2 T. sugar
2 c. heavy cream
Combine tomatoes, chicken broth, butter, onion, soda, and sugar in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Heat until just boiling, then reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour. Heat the heavy cream in the top half of a double boiler until warm. Add cream to hot tomato mixture and stir until well combined. For a spicy alternative, add a can of tomatoes with chiles (Rotel)
Makes about 2 quarts.
We like a little bit of spice to ours, so used one can of rotel, and it was just right :)
Next time I don't think I'll add as many tomatoes as it calls for. It was a little much.
Other then that it is a must try... we L♥ved it!
