Recipe: Creamy Tomato Soup

The harsh winter temperatures here in Boston have already begun. We’ve even had a Nor’easter already! All this chilly weather has had me craving tomato soup and a grilled cheese something fierce. I went to look up a local place where I could pick some up but quickly came to the conclusion that I could easily make my own.

Domestocrat’s Creamy Tomato Soup (yields 5 servings)
1 onion, chopped finely
3 shallots, chopped finely
1 tbsp. EVOO
30 oz. canned tomato sauce
14.5 oz. can of diced tomatoes
2 cups chicken stock/broth (I used low sodium)
1.5 cups greek yogurt
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tbsp. dried italian herbs

In a deep pot, sauté up the onion and shallots with the EVOO. Cook until they are tender and brown. This will take about 7-10 minutes.

When the onion and shallots are done, add in the tomato sauce and diced tomato, and pour in the chicken stock. Cover and simmer on low for 25 minutes.

When the first simmer is complete, add the greek yogurt, stir in thoroughly, taste for seasonings and adjust as needed, put the lid back on, and simmer for another 30 minutes on low.
