Happy Monday! Today is the first day that I’ve….
A. seen dry sidewalks and roads
B. walked outside without my hood on
…in the past two months. Glorious! Though I hear there is more snow on the way tomorrow morning. In which case you should make this creamy homemade tomato soup. It is SO easy and SO good.
(adapted from Eat, Live, Run)
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 cup onion, finely diced
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 28-ounce can of diced tomatoes
- 2 1/2 cups whole milk
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
Heat butter in a dutch oven (or a big pot) on medium heat. Add the onions and cook until translucent. Add the flour and stir to incorporate; cook for 2-3 more minutes. In a bowl, combine tomatoes, sugar, salt, and baking soda. Whisk milk into butter and onion mixture, then add the tomatoes. Bring to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes; soup will thicken. Carefully pour the soup into a blender and blend until smooth, or use an immersion blender if you have one! Serve with grilled cheese for maximum enjoyment.
And you should finish it off with this rich, dreamy peanut butter hot cocoa.
