Homemade Organic Savory Tomato Soup

This recipe is adapted from the Southern Heritage Plain and Fancy Poultry Cookbook.  This is a wonderful recipe for tomato soup that doesn’t have any sugar in it at all.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • 8 medium organic tomatoes, diced (approximately 6 cups)
  • 3 cups water (I used Homemade Organic Chicken Stock instead.  Homemade Organic Vegetable Stock or Homemade Organic Beef Stock would work, too.)
  • 1 medium organic onion, chopped
  • 2 small organic bay leaves
  • 1 1/2 tsp. organic celery seeds
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Real Salt
  • 1/4 tsp. organic freshly ground peppercorn blend
  • 1/4 tsp. organic red pepper (I used organic cayenne pepper)
  • 4 Tbsp. organic pasture butter
  • 4 1/2 Tbsp. organic unbleached white flour

Here’s What I do:

  1. Combine the chopped tomatoes, stock or water, chopped onion, bay leaves, Real Salt, peppercorn blend and cayenne pepper in a large stockpot.
  2. Bring to a boil, stirring well.
  3. Make a roux out of the flour and butter.  (Combine until it forms a paste.)
  4. Add roux to the soup and stir until it is well blended.
  5. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat and discard the bay leaves.
  7. Allow the soup to cool slightly, then use an immersion blender to blend the soup into a puree.
  8. Enjoy!
