Creamy Tomato Soup
Soups are satisfying dishes that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Serve with grilled cheese sandwiches or with a Family Salad.
  1. Melt butter in a large heavy pot over medium heat. Add thyme, onion, and garlic. Cook until onion is completely soft and translucent, 10-12 minutes. Increase heat to medium-high; add tomato paste. Continue cooking, stirring often, until paste has begun to caramelize in spots, 5-6 minutes.
  2. Add tomatoes with juices and broth to pot. Increase heat to bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium. Simmer until flavors meld, about 15-20 minutes. Remove soup from heat; let cool slightly. Working in small batches, purée soup in a blender until smooth. Return to pot.
  3. Stir in cream. Simmer soup about 5 minutes more to combine flavors. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
