My friend, Cathy, makes a version of this soup and any time I’ve eaten it, my eyes have closed and I’ve sighed with a deep, deep sense of solemnity and peace. It’s a basic creamy tomato soup, but it uses simple pantry ingredients (as well as a couple of fresh ones), and it’s made extra special by the addition of cooking sherry.
Sauté diced onions in butter until translucent. Then add canned tomatoes, tomato juice, chicken base, sugar, pinch of salt, black pepper and stir. Bring to a near boil, then turn off heat. Add in sherry and cream and stir. Add in parsley and basil to taste.
Adjust other seasonings and serve with yummy, crusty bread on a cold blustery, dreary, depressing, rainy, snowy day. Then close your eyes.
And give thanks for soups like this.
