4 tablespoons butter 1 large onion, chopped 1 tablespoon minced garlic 2 tablespoons flour 3 1/2 pounds ripe tomatoes, chopped (I use canned more often than not) 2 tablespoons tomato paste 1 teaspoon sugar 3 cups broth (vegetable or chicken) Salt and pepper, to taste 1 cup heavy cream
1. Melt the butter over low heat in a pot.
2. Add the onion; cook over low heat for 8 to 10 minutes, until soft. Add the garlic during the last 2 minutes, stirring. Sprinkle with flour and cook 3 minutes longer, stirring.
3. Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar, and broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer and cover; cook over medium-low heat for 30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat and cool slightly.
4. Purée the soup in a food processor - I use the hand blender and do it right in the pot. Stir in the heavy cream.
