Thick & Creamy Tomato Soup



  1. Heat oil in large stockpot
  2. Add onion and garlic
  3. Saute until tender
  4. Stir in flour and let brown 2-3 minutes
  5. Puree tomatoes in blender or food processor (Skip this step if you have hand/immersion blender) Place in separate saucepan, bring to a simmer
  6. Add sucanat, salt, pepper, and basil
  7. Pour in milk all at once
  8. Cook and stir constantly over medium heat until it reaches a simmer and begins to thicken
  9. Stir in the heated tomatoes and allow flavors to meld 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally
  10. Optional Step: If you have a hand blender, puree soup right in stockpot (unless you like chunky tomato soup, then just leave as-is)
  11. Adjust seasonings if needed
  12. Serve with a handful of shredded parmesan cheese on top


Makes an excellent side to a grilled cheese sandwich or alongside some crusty homemade bread.
