And with hopefully cooler temperatures, we will all want to be warming up.
Gluten Free Fresh Tuscan Tomato and Basil Soup
4 tbs butter
1/4 cup cornstarch
2 cups cherry or grape tomatoes
2 cups fresh basil leaves (stems removed)
2 tbs fresh oregano leaves
2 cans tomato sauce
1 1/2 cups milk
1 cup cream
Please remember that since this recipe has cream in it, do not boil the soup! If you boil it, you will end up with curdled soup. So remember: watch the stove and heat without boiling.
Make a roux with the butter and cornstarch; cook over medium heat for 5 minutes. Blend tomatoes, basil and oregano in the blender until smooth. Stir the mixture into the hot butter mixture. Bring to a boil and add the milk, cream, and tomato sauce. Heat over low heat or a low flame and sprinkle with salt, garlic salt, and pepper to taste. Goes great with a toasty GF grilled cheese. :)
