Creamy Tomato Soup Recipe

with Sharon Peterson

This is an easy creamy tomato soup recipe using home canned tomatoes. Quick and easy with ingredients you most likely have on hand.

Please note:  This is not a recipe for canning, it is a recipe for a delicious dinner using home canned tomatoes.  There is a distinct difference.  :)  Please don't make this and try to preserve it.  

If you like this recipe you can find it and more in this Simple Soups Recipe Book.  

    White Sauce
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 4 cups milk

Bring tomatoes, celery and onion to a boil and keep at a low boil for 10 minutes. Continue simmering if needed until onion and celery are soft. Remove from heat.

Puree tomato mixture in the blender. I like to allow it to cool a bit for easier handling. Otherwise, be careful, it will be hot. Do not let it splash on you.

Make a white sauce.

Heat butter in sauce pan until melted. Add 3 cups milk and bring to just below a boil.

Mix flour and the last cup of milk in a shaker container or whisk together thoroughly. Slowly pour into milk mixture stirring with a wire whisk constantly.

Stirring constantly, simmer until thickened. Stir in basil or any other desired spices.

Stir white sauce into the tomato puree. 

If you like more tomatoey (I think I just made that word up) use less white sauce; if you like very creamy tomato soup, dump it all in! Heat through and serve.

Goes great with crackers, toast, or (our favorite) grilled cheese sandwiches. Yum!
