Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

I think fall arrived in Logan today. It was cool and cloudy, rained a little, and I saw leaves falling. I’m so excited! Fall is my season.

One great thing about fall is the FOOD. Like SOUP. I LOVE soup. This is one of my favorites.

You will need:

  • A few stalks of celery
  • Handful of baby carrots
  • 1/2 an onion
  • 1 can diced or crushed tomatoes
  • 1 small can of tomatoes
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 Tbls oregano
  • 1 Tbls basil
  • 1 Tbls sage
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • Parmesan cheese to taste

For the roux:

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup flour

Dice and saute celery, carrots, and onions in olive oil until soft. The smaller diced they are, the better. Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, chicken broth, and spices and let simmer.

While soup simmers, prepare a roux from the butter and flour and whisk until smooth. Stir in 1 cup of hit soup until well combined. Then add to soup and stir until smooth.

Add the milk, corn, and Parmesan cheese. Let simmer for about 10 minutes before serving.
