Tomato Soup

Tomato Soup

1 tablespoon unsalted butter;
1 tablespoon olive oil;
1 large onion, chopped;
2 large cloves garlic, minced;
1 tablespoon flour;
2 26-oz. cans whole peeled plum tomatoes, one drained;
2 tablespoons tomato paste;
1 teaspoon sugar;
2 cups reduced-fat, low-sodium veggie or chicken broth;
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves;
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste.


In a large pot or small Dutch oven, melt butter and oil over low heat. Add onion and sweat until softened, about 9 minutes. Add garlic and cook another 2 minutes, until fragrant, stirring frequently. Add flour and cook for another 3 minutes, stirring frequently. 
Add tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar, and broth and bring to a boil. While mixture is heating up, cut tomatoes into large chunks with a pair of kitchen shears. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 30 minutes (or until it reaches desired consistency), stirring occasionally. Add cloves, salt, and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and let cool for a few minutes.
Puree soup using an immersion or regular blender. (Be careful if using regular blender – hot liquids can spill at first.) If you’re not into seeds, pour puree through a strainer back into the pot. (I didn’t. You don’t really notice them.) Warm a little, then serve.
