Thick, Chunky, Creamy Tomato Soup

tomato-soup3I originally found this recipe on The Prairie Homestead website. A really charming website with a lot of wonderful down home things to try if you want to get off the grid and making things from scratch.

I admit I was not much of a tomato soup fan (though I love most everything else tomato) but this recipe looked so good I had to try it. Thank heavens because it is delicious and will be a wonderful winter favorite from now on.

It past the “hubby taste test” with flying colors … boy was I shocked. He is the original “I HATE ANYTHING CREAMY”.

I cut the recipe in half since there are just 2 of us and made a few adjustments to the original recipe. So here is my version.

The pictures below are numbered according to the recipe steps.
