ISO Tomato soup recipe

I'm looking for a good tomato soup recipe, possibly using canned tomatoes that I can use in my cooking classes for teenagers. We have a two hour slot in which we prepare 2 courses and do all the clear up - so it needs to be fairly simple.

Here is a good ol stand by.

I puree one onion, sweat until translucent, salt and white pepper, add pureed hole par peeled(or chopped)canned tomatoes, bring to simmer, add heavy cream and some chicken stock(omit stock for a veggie version), bring to simmer, take off heat and mix in butter. Mix well!

I like it topped with a little fresh basil and sour cream, or some really crispy bacon.

Tomato Soup

2 Tb Olive oil
1/4 Lb Pancetta – diced
1 Carrot - diced
1 Onion - diced
1 Celery - diced
2 Garlic - minced
2 Tb Flour
4 C Chicken broth
16 Oz Tomato
1/2 Tb Thyme
1/2 Tb Rosemary
1/2 Tb Cumin
1 tsp Chili Powder
TT Salt & Pepper


Saute the pancetta in the oil until the fat is rendered and the lean is browned.

Sauté the vegetables in the fat over medium high heat until they begin to brown.

Add the flour and cook for two - three minutes.

Add the broth and deglaze the pan.

Add the tomato, herbs and spices.

Cook for 30 - 45 minutes.

Use a blender or hand blender to puree the soup.

Strain to remove the rosemary.

Here are some ideas to season your home made Tomato soup Fresh or dried dill is very good in Tom. soup. And old Mess sargent told me he put ground clove in his soup and for a military mess haul it was very good. when serving a dollop of sour cream is also a good garnish Just some ideas for you

This is embarrassing!

1 Can Campbell's tomato soup
1 can whole milk

Put soup into blender, add one can full of milk (stir milk inside the can with a spoon to get every last drop of condensed soup out of the can), and process on MIX setting unitl the contents are one, uniform, kinda pink color. Pour soup mixture into a sauce pan and heat on stove until just before it boils.

Pour soup into a bowl, and serve, accompanied by a grilled sandwich of American cheese on Wonder, Weber's, or better yet, Sunbeam white bread.

Uh, no, but I did forget about the handful of Oyster crackers floating in the soup!

Dads Tomato Soup
One can whole tomatoes, or cut tomatoes put in 3 quart pan
Use tomato can, fill with water 1/2 full and add to tomatoes (do not use stewed tomatoes)
Slice small onion then cut slices in half then add to soup
Heat till onion is cooked, let it cool for a minute or so
Add 1 tsp baking soda (this will cause the soup to bubble up so be careful it dose not rise over the top of the pan)
Mix well till all of the bubbles are ALL gone
Return to heat adding milk about the same amount as the can of tomatoes
salt and pepper to taste
Dad always likes to put a little butter on his.
This is a favorite of mine and is Q&E and every one seems to have tomatoes onion and milk in there pantry.
The key thing in this soup is the baking soda, this takes all of the acidity out of tomatoes.
enjoy!
