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 or margarine
  • 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.

"Takes some time to chop up all the veggies, but well worth it. Loved the flavor of curry mingled with the tomatoes and vegetables. Excellent with grilled cheese sandwiches."

"I have made this soup several times and we love the fresh homeade taste of it. It's perfect to use up our abundance of garden tomatoes. The only part of it that is not my favorite is peeling the tomatoes. Other than that, it is actually pretty simple to make."
