Tomato Soup

No photo, but this is truly awesome, regardless.  I essentially compiled a bunch of soup recipes and adjusted it to what we had on hand, and came up with this.

Tomato Soup

6-7 tomatoes, seeded & chopped
¼ onion, chopped
1 c. leftover tomato-based sauce (spaghetti, soup, etc)
1 can chicken/veggie broth (about 1.75 c.)
2-3 Tbs flour
2-3 Tbs butter/olive oil
1-2 c. milk/cream
12-16 basil leaves, chopped
salt and pepper to taste

Simmer first 4 ingredients listed together in a covered pot, up to 30 min.  Mix flour and butter/oil in saucepan on med heat, then add milk.  Combine all in pot.  Immersion blend with basil.  Season and serve with grilled cheese sandwiches and chocolate milkshakes.

In a pinch I’ll compensate with more sauce if not enough tomatoes are on hand.  As long as it’s heavy with tomatoes of some kind, I think you’ll be fine.
