This is a lower-fat version of the original cream of tomato soup my mother used to make when I was growing up. It is still my absolute favorite, even without all the cream. 1 stick butter 1 large onion, peeled and sliced 35 oz. crushed tomatoes 4 basil leaves or ½ tsp. dried 2 sprigs fresh thyme or ½ tsp. dried ¼ cup of flour 3 ¾ cups chicken stock 1 Tbsp. sugar Salt and pepper to taste n Melt the butter in a large pot. Add the olive oil. Add the onion, thyme, and basil and stir on low/medium heat until the onion is wilted (about 10 minutes). Pour in the crushed tomatoes and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Be careful not to let the soup burn. Next, mix the flour in a small amount of chicken stock with a fork until all the lumps are out. Pour the mixture into the soup, as well as the remaining stock. Simmer another 30 minutes. Finally, add the sugar. Pour the soup into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Pour and serve.
