Why I Love This Recipe

This simple recipe is a delicious change from canned tomato soup. Like its canned counterpart, this version also goes great with a grilled cheese sandwich.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 can whole tomatoes, 28 ounces
2 slices onion
1 bay leaf
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp flour
1 1/2 cups milk


In a 2 quart saucepan, combine the tomatoes, onion slices, sugar, and seasonings.

Bring to a boil and then lower heat; simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool slightly.

Press the tomato mixture through a sieve or a food mill, saving the juice that is extracted. Discard the solids.

In another saucepan, melt the butter.

Stir in the flour and cook for a few minutes, stirring frequently.

Add the milk; stir and continue cooking until mixture is thickened and bubbly.

Ladle into bowls.

Slowly add the tomato 'juice' into the white sauce, stirring constantly.
