Follow most of the recipe only used 6 large tomatoes and a can of Italian peeled tomatoes, omitted cloves (which I hate), otherwise I used a mix of butter and olive oil. It was simply delicious, it'll be my "go-to" tomato soup from now. Very easy to make. Ah...forgot to mention I added the rest of the cream I had in the fridge which made it a bit richer but totally not needed if you only add the thickener (( did) milk and corn starch.
Tomatoes are slowly cooked with onions and celery, then pureed and strained and cooked again with seasonings to make a thick, smooth soup.
I followed the recipe loosely. Very loosely. “Eight tomatoes” was too vague for me. Eight large tomatoes? Eight medium or eight small tomatoes? When I brought in a big bowl of tomatoes from my garden today, they ranged in size from teeny to behemoth. (I grow several different varieties) The size of the tomatoes used for the recipe would definitely affect the outcome. So I kind of winged it, but weighed what I used for purposes of this review – I used just a tad over three pounds and ran them all through a food mill before proceeding with the recipe. I found the directions to cook the peppers “until slightly charred” a little confusing. I’m not sure how you’d do that with them chopped, in a pot, with a teaspoon of butter. When I think of charred I think broiled or roasted, in the oven or over a flame. Suffice it to say I sweated out the peppers and onions and added the garlic during the last 30 seconds or so before adding the tomato puree and the chicken broth. I used no sugar, clove
