Homemade Tomato Soup

Today was glorious! It rained, it poured, and I made tomato soup!  Dinner was perfect.  Warm, hearty, and delicious!  Three things that make me feel like I am back in Oregon.  The weather there is normally chilly so warm and hearty meals make me feel at home.  I have never made homemade tomato soup so this was exciting.  It turned out really well and I think this will become a staple meal come this fall.  However, before cooking up tomato soup I had to go harvest at the farm!  Celery is a new croup this week and I was excited to grab some to throw in tonight’s dinner!

Going for the big pull!!!

Success!

Ingredients for homemade tomato soup: ( I got this recipe from Food Network Magazine)

1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil

1 medium onion, chopped

1 clove of garlic, chopped

2 stalks of celery, chopped

2 pounds of tomatoes chopped

1/2 teaspoon sugar

pinch of salt and pepper

Combine the olive oil, onion, garlic, celery, tomatoes, sugar and salt in a saucepan.  Cooke over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the veggies are tender, about 25 minutes.  Puree until smooth with an immersion blender, or transfer to a regular blender in batches and puree.  Season with salt and pepper.

We enjoyed our soup with a side of grilled cheese!

And a Harvest Moon Pumpkin Ale!  I am really trying to pretend that it is fall!!!

Have a great night!

    Sounds like comfort food to me. Tonight was salmon and salad at our house. i must admit homemade tomato soup sounds pretty yummy. There neeeds to be a chill in the air for it. Our weather is quiet nice so we will have to wait. Grilled cheese? Sounds like when you were a kid.
