Creamy Tomato Soup

4.0
1 Ratings
The recipe is incredibly simple, calling for nearly all pantry items: onions, garlic, tomato paste, and canned peeled tomatoes. You may have to add thyme to your shopping list, though I made it once without it, and it turned out fine. You might also need to pick up some heavy cream, which could be omitted, but I think it adds a necessary touch of richness— a little cream goes a long way here balancing the acidity and sweetness of the tomatoes.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Melt Unsalted Butter (2 Tbsp) in a large heavy pot over medium heat. Add Fresh Thyme (2 sprigs) , Onion (1) and Garlic (2 cloves) . Season with Kosher Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper (to taste) . Cook until onion is completely soft and translucent, 10-12 minutes.
Step 2
Increase heat to medium-high; add Tomato Paste (2 Tbsp) . Continue cooking, stirring often, until paste has begun to caramelize in spots, 5-6 minutes—it will begin to stick to the bottom of the pan.
Step 3
Add Canned Whole Peeled Tomatoes (6 2/3 cups) with juices and Water (4 cups) to pot. Increase heat to high; bring to a simmer. As the plum tomatoes rise to the surface while the soup simmers, use scissors to cut them up.
Step 4
Reduce heat to medium. Simmer until flavors meld and the soup has reduced by a quarter, 45 minutes or so. Remove soup from heat; discard thyme sprigs. Working in small batches, purée soup in a blender until smooth or purée with an immersion blender.
Step 5
Stir in Heavy Cream (1/4 cup) . Taste and adjust as needed. I like adding Granulated Sugar (1 tsp) and I add at least a teaspoon of Kosher Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper (to taste) . Simmer soup until flavors meld, 5-10 minutes longer. Taste again, and add more cream, if desired.
Step 6
Ladle soup into bowls and put Parmigiano-Reggiano (to taste) over top. Serve with more pepper on the side and Bread (to taste) .
