Directions

  1. In a stockpot, over medium heat, combine the tomatoes, onion, 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.

This soup is absolutely delicious! Although, I must admit I made several changes - mostly based on previous reviews! I've made this several times and always double the recipe. I saute lots of chopped garlic in olive oil and then add the chopped onions (2 large) and saute until tender. I add chopped tomatoes (with skin and seeds) and bring to a boil. I then add the chicken stock and cook for about 20 minutes. I cool slightly and add fresh chopped basil (about 3 TBSP). I puree with a submergible blender (you can use a regular blender) and then add the roux as described in the recipe. I only add a half tsp sugar. In addition to the salt I add pepper to taste. I add 2 TBSP balsamic vinegar and about an 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper. I add 1 cup heavy cream. I've only made this soup with home grown tomatoes. Now that the season is over I'm going to try it with store bought or even canned tomatoes. This soup is very sophisticated and I think would be great for a dinner party. It was so good my Hubby wouldn't let me share it!! I'm already looking forward to next years tomato crop - I'll never have too many now!!

This recipe turned out excellent; the soup tasted so fresh and healthy. A few notes about this recipe. First, the recipe says "1 slice onion"; I treated this as though it said "1 sliced onion", and it worked out perfectly (I am sure this is what was intented). Also, as someone else noted, this recipe as it stands does not make enough soup. I doubled the recipe and it made enough for 5 people to have one medium sized bowl of soup each. At least double this recipe, if not triple it. Also, by substituting vegetable stock for chicken broth, this recipe is vegetarian-friendly. In addition, I made the following alterations: added 1 bay leaf, 1 tsp crushed garlic, 1 tsp cayenne pepper, 1/2 cup milk, 1 Tbsp oregano, 1 tsp thyme, pepper to taste. Delicious!

This soup was the best. I didn't have cloves around the house, but it still turned out wonderfully, I added some garlic instead. Also, Rather than discarding all of the tomatoes after they'd cooked, I pureed them for a few seconds in the blender, and added them to the rue. It was fabulous. Thanks!!!
