Homemade Tomato Soup

   My youngest son loves tomato soup.  He would eat it every day if we would let him.  I hate him eating the store-bought variety because of all the extra ingredients and sodium that they put into it.  I prefer to make my family homemade tomato soup.

3 ½ c. chopped tomatoes

2 c. chicken broth

1 c. milk

2 T. flour

1 T. butter

1 T. chopped onion

1 T. basil

1 ½ tsp. sugar

1 tsp. garlic

¼ tsp. salt

¼ tsp. pepper


    In a large pot, melt the butter and then fry up the onion and garlic. Sauté until done.  Now stir in the rest of the ingredients.

     Stir well and let simmer about 15 minutes.  Remove from the stove and puree.  It is now ready to eat.

To me, tomato soup is good comfort food, another good comfort food is my Homemade Chicken and Dumplings.  What else do you consider "comfort food"?

  1. This sounds delicious! Would you be able to store this (canned, refrigerator, freezer) ? Thank you!

    1. Thank you Jennifer. We have not tried canning it yet. My family drinks it so fast, it won't last no time. I do know you should be able to store it in the refrigerator for up to a week.

  2. This looks SO good! I will be trying it now that it will be getting cooler. :-) Thanks for linking up with "Try a New Recipe Tuesday." I hope you can join us again this week.
