Rich Tomato Soup Recipe

Rich Tomato Soup Recipe

My husband doesn't care for traditional tomato soup, but he loves this rich, fresh-tasting version. It has an unexpected chicken-broth base and appealing chunks of tomatoes. It's an excellent first course and a great light lunch with a salad and garlic bread.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook: 25 min. YIELD:9 servings


  • 2 cups sliced carrots
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 4-1/2 cups chicken broth, divided
  • 4 medium tomatoes, peeled and chopped (4 cups)
  • 4 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, optional
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour


  • 1. In a Dutch oven, saute carrots, celery, onion and green pepper in butter until tender. Add 4 cups broth, tomatoes, sugar, curry powder, salt if desired and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer for 20 minutes.
  • 2. In a small bowl, combine the flour and remaining broth until smooth. Gradually add to soup. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Yield: 9 servings (about 2 quarts).
