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.

Homemade Tomato Soup

       In a large pot, melt 1 tablespoon of butter and fry up 1 tablespoon of chopped onion and 1 teaspoon of garlic.  Saute until done.  Now stir in 2 tablespoons of flour, 2 cups of chicken broth,  3 1/2 cups of chopped tomatoes, 1 cup of milk, 1 1/2 teaspoons of sugar, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 1/4 teaspoon of pepper and finally, 1 tablespoon of basil.

 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.
