Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 20 min.


2 servings

"This soup is particularly good to take along for lunch with a sandwich or a salad," suggest Patty Kile of Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania. "It is also just fine served cold. Most often, I make the recipe ahead and keep it in the fridge."


  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 2 medium tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 1/3 cup tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/4 cups cold water, divided
  • 1/3 cup fat-free half-and-half
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons minced fresh dill


  1. In a small saucepan, cook onion and garlic in oil and butter over low heat until tender. Add the tomatoes, sugar, salt and pepper; cook over medium-high heat for 3 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in tomato paste.
  2. Combine flour and 1/4 cup of water until smooth; stir into tomato mixture. Gradually stir in remaining water until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes.
  3. Place a sieve over a bowl; pour tomato mixture into sieve. Press with the back of a spoon to remove tomato seeds and skin. Return puree to pan. Add half-and-half and dill; cook over low heat just until heated through (do not boil).
