- 4 tbsp butter
- 2 cloves garlic
- 5 tbsp whole-wheat flour
- 5 cups chicken broth/stock
- 1 28oz can whole peeled tomatoes roughly chopped
- 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.
Pour in the broth and tomatoes and bring to a boil.
Simmer on low heat for 30 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.
Stir in heavy cream and salt & pepper to taste.
Serve warm with any herbs you'd like to add - fresh basil or rosemary are good choices. Top with bacon, croutons, or plain!
