Cream Of Tomato Soup Recipe #Fall #Soups


When I was growing up, canned tomato soup was a staple in our house. We had it for lunch all the time, and I pretty much assumed that was the way all tomato soups would taste. But that is definitely not true, and I think homemade soup always tastes better than canned.

I adapted this Cream of Tomato Soup recipe from Martha Stewart, and it's so delicious. It's one of my go-to recipes that I use when I want to make a soup that I know will turn out great, and my family and friends will enjoy.

And if you add a green salad, some garlic or cornbread, you have a delicious and easy dinner. A soup dinner is one of my favorite meals to put together during fall and winter. There is just something so cozy about a big pot of soup simmering on the stove when it chilly and rainy outside.

Like most of the soups I make, this recipe could be doubled, and the other half put into the freezer for another day. It's great to come home after a long day and know you have a delicious, already made soup that you can heat up for dinner.

2 tablespoons butter
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
