  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste


  • Heat the butter in a large soup pot over medium-high heat. Add the diced onion and cook for about 5 – 6 minutes, or until it starts the onions get soft.
  • Add the flour and stir nonstop for 2 minutes.

  • Remove from the heat and puree the soup either in a blender (in batches) or with a handheld immersion blender until it's smooth and the big chunks of tomatoes are blended up.
