Tomato Soup

I'd forgotten that this recipe was in my repertoire. It's a Martha Stewart Tomato Soup recipe I copied down several years ago and have tweaked it somewhat. Before I made this soup I wondered why anyone would bother making their own tomato soup when there was a certain Campbell's variety that tasted just dandy. Well, this is much better and oh so easy, it's almost ridiculous! And once you blend it up, it has a wonderful creamy texture even though there is no milk or cream in it.

Tomato Soup

3 T butter
1/2 chopped onion
1 clove garlic
1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
1 can chicken broth
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Melt butter in saucepan and sautee onion and garlic till limp. Add tomatoes, broth, salt and pepper and simmer for 20 minutes or so. Place in blender and puree, return to pot then serve it up!

Of course, it's just splendid with a grilled cheese sandwich. The perfect Saturday night dinner!
