Deluxe Cream of Tomato Soup

I have an over abundance of tomatoes right now with growing my own so, I made this soup and it is wonderfully delicious! I am planning on making a larger batch and freezing some for over the winter.



  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 4 large tomatoes, peeled*, cored, seeded and chopped
  • 2 celery ribs, minced
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 1tsp. sugar
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tsp. fresh dill or 1 tsp. dried
  • salt and pepper to taste


Melt the butter in a medium saucepan. Add onion and celery; saute gently over medium heat for 5 minutes or until soft but, not browned. Stir in the tomatoes and sugar; simmer 8-10 minutes. Transfer all to a blender and puree. Pour back into pan and add rest of ingredients. Serve with sandwiches or garden salad for a complete meal.

*To peel tomatoes: Submerge for 30 seconds in boiling water. Remove and rinse briefly under cold water. Skins slip right off!
