Recipe: Deluxe cream of tomato soup

Deluxe cream of tomato soup

Use heirloom tomatoes, if possible.

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 small onion, finely chopped

2 celery ribs, finely chopped

4 large Florida tomatoes, peeled, cored, seeded and chopped

1 teaspoon sugar or to taste

2 cups vegetable or chicken broth

½ cup heavy cream

2 teaspoons chopped fresh dill weed

salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Melt butter in a medium-size non-aluminum pan. Add the onion and celery and sauté gently over medium-low heat for 5 minutes, stirring often. Do not brown. Stir in the tomatoes and sugar. Simmer, covered, for 6 to 8 minutes, until tomatoes are soft.

Transfer the vegetables to a food processor and process to a smooth puree. Pour the puree back into the saucepan and stir in remaining ingredients. Heat the soup through, adjusting seasoning to taste. Serve hot.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.
