classic tomato soup

There's nothing like coming home from Thanksgiving break (pics to be posted soon) and wanting to make some soup to carry one through the week. I picked this recipe out of Everyday Food and found it easy and delicious.

Classic Tomato Soup
  1. 4 T butter, 2 T olive oil, 1 med. onion- season with s&p and cook until translucent, about 5 min.
  2. Stir in 1/4 c flour, 3 T tomato paste- cook 1 min
  3. Add spices- thyme, oregano, basil, 30 ounces chicken broth and 2 28 ounce cans diced tomatoes bring to a boil and then reduce heat and let simmer 30 min.
  4. blender 5 cups soup, return to pan and serve. yum.
