Soup’s On!

As I’m sitting here at my desk, I have a steaming hot bowl of homemade cream of tomato soup in front of me that my darling daughter just delivered. There is nothing quite so satisfying and soothing as a hot bowl of soup when the weather’s cold.

Here in Wisconsin, we’ve settled into real winter with a few snow storms and some really cold temperatures over the last few weeks. I find I reach for my soup recipes when winter whips through. How about you?

Isn’t it comforting to have a big stockpot simmering on the back burner of the stove when it’s blustery outside? What’s your favorite soup to serve?

Here is our homemade tomato soup recipe to get the juices flowing!

Cream of Tomato Soup

2 tablespoons butter
1 chopped white onion
2 tablespoons flour
1 quart tomato sauce
2 cups milk
Salt and pepper to taste
Grated parmesan cheese

In medium stockpot over medium heat, saute onions in butter and remove from the heat.

Stir in the flour and then slowly whisk in the tomato sauce.

Return the stockpot to the heat and add salt and pepper to taste. Cook until it simmers but don’t let it boil. Remove the stockpot from the heat.

Let the soup cool 10 minutes then add the milk. Serve immediately and top with a pinch of parmesan cheese.
