Lazy Tomato Soup


Just two posts ago I was telling you about my love of canned tomatoes. This recipe is a whole lot of canned tomato goodness. Super duper simple and very tasty, perfect for a Wednesday night after hitting the gym hard

My mother sent me this recipe a month or so ago and I have made it three or four times since, I think that says enough about how yummy it is. Below is the unedited version she sent me <3

Tomato Soup

1 1/2 tablespoon butter 6 green onions, chopped 1 clove garlic, minced (or pressed) 3 cups tomatoes, peeled & chopped (1 796 ml can chopped tomatoes) 1 1/2 cups chicken broth (warm it in microwave) 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1 1/2 tsp. sugar

salt & pepper to taste

Melt butter and cook onions for 3 minutes. Add garlic for last 30 seconds with onions. Add tomatoes and cook 5 minutes. (the burner was closer to medium than high) Add chicken broth, lemon juice & sugar. Add salt & pepper to taste Cover and simmer 5 minutes* *I turned burner to low (almost minimum) and let it come almost to boil. Do not boil.

Enjoy!

Love, mom

Note - mom and I enjoy sprinkling this with frozen cilantro flakes
