Tomato Soup

About: I'm a freshman in high school with a passion for anything that tastes good or looks amazing. If it's difficult, really cool, or just looks fun you can bet I will do it.

I was going to make cream of tomato soup but the milk kept curdling and I figured if I couldn't prevent that then I shouldn't be making this instructable. So here is a tomato soup that was mostly improvised. it is incredibly easy to make and home canned tomatoes really make it taste good. In addition a grilled cheese sandwich goes great with this.

Step 1: Ingredients

1 quart canned tomatoes

2 cups broth

1 onion

1 clove of garlic

1 bay leaf


1/4 teaspoon oregano

2 tablespoons Butter

Step 2: Saute

Chop the onion and garlic and saute them in butter. Add the bay leaf as well.

Step 3: Add All of the Ingredients

Add the canned tomatoes and broth. Then sprinkle on the salt and oregano as well. Then simmer for 20 minutes.

Step 4: Serving Suggestions

I strongly recommend a nice grilled cheese sandwich along with this.

    My dad learned the secret of making cream of tomato soup in his high-school chemistry class, so I can pass it on to you: make your roux, and thin it with the milk or cream. Bring it to a slow bubble. Only then do you stir in the tomatoes. Voila! No curdling.
