Creamy Tomato Soup

Another Martha offering (Martha Stewart Living, Sept 2001).


Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and garlic, and cook, stirring, until onions are translucent, about 3 minutes. Add wine, tomatoes, salt, and pepper. Cook just until tomatoes are falling apart, about 5 minutes. Stir in basil, and remove from heat.

Let cool slightly. Transfer tomato mixture to a blender, filling the jar no more than halfway; work in batches if necessary. Cover lid with a clean dish towel, and press lid securely in place while blending soup.

Return soup to saucepan. Add cream/soy milk, and adjust consistency with water if necessary. Season with salt and pepper.

Serves 4.


6 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 small onions, finely chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup dry white wine
3 pounds ripe summer tomatoes (4 cups chopped)
1 teaspoon coarse salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 cup fresh basil leaves, loosely packed
1/2 cup heavy cream (or creamy unsweetened soy milk)
