That favorite tomato soup you had at that cozy cafe? Easy--just blend tomatoes, a bit of light cream, onion, and plenty of fresh basil and you've got it.
tablespoons butter or margarine
medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
small carrots, shredded (1 cup)
tablespoons Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
jar (26 oz) Muir Glen™ chunky tomato pasta sauce
can (14.5 oz) Muir Glen™ diced tomatoes, undrained
cup chopped fresh basil leaves
In 3-quart saucepan, heat butter over medium-high heat. Add onion and carrots; cook and stir 3 to 4 minutes or until softened. Add flour; cook and stir until moistened. Gradually add half-and-half, cooking and stirring about 2 minutes or until smooth.
Stir in remaining ingredients. Cover; cook over medium heat about 15 minutes, stirring frequently, just until mixture comes to a boil.
If desired, top with additional chopped fresh basil leaves.
Fresh chopped parsley can be used in place of fresh basil.
