It is easy and so amazing. And, I figured that quite a few other people might have some extra tomatoes right now. So, here is the recipe. While I usually play around and only loosely follow a recipe, this one is truly perfect as is. It does have some, lets just say, non-diet friendly ingredients, if this makes you squeamish just close your eyes as you add these ingredients.
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup butter
3/4 teaspoon dill seed
1 teaspoon dill weed
1 teaspoon oregano
1/4 cup flour
3 cups broth (chicken or veg.)
4 cups tomatoes (fresh is best but canned is really tasty too)1/2 teaspoon white pepper
1 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
1 cup or cream (you can substitute one half of this for half and half)
1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley
1/4 cup honey
Saute the onions, dills and oregano in the butter. Once soft, add the flour and stir until dry (turns into a rou). Stir in the broth, tomatoes, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and then turn down heat to a simmer for about 20 minutes until a good bit of the water reduces. Turn off the heat and add the parsley, honey, and cream. Stir together and serve!
I'd love to know others comfort foods. Got a good shepard's pie or cheesy casserole? Leave a comment or link to your blog and let me know. Also, if you try the soup, let me know what you think.
Addition: I should have mentioned that I usually puree my tomatoes in the cuisinart because I like the soup fully pureed. But, chunk people might prefer to just chop them.
