I love tomato soup, particularly with a grilled cheese sandwich. This is a classic recipe that has a great flavor and spice. Make it gluten free by using a gluten free flour.
3 T butter
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 large clove garlic, minced
2 T Flour
2 cups homemade or lower sodium chicken broth
2 cups Nan's Naughty And Nice Bloody Mary Mix And Recipe Boost
2 cups tomatoes, whole, diced or puree
1 1/2 teas sugar
1-3 springs fresh thyme
1/2 teas white or black pepper to to taste
Heat butter until melted, add onion and sauté until soft but not brown. Add garlic and sauté for 1 minute being careful not to burn. Add flour and stir for about 2-3 minutes. Add broth, Nan's, sugar, thyme and pepper. Bring to a simmer, lower heat, cover and simmer for about 40 minutes stirring occasionally. Discard thyme sprigs, puree soup with an immersion blender. Enjoy!
