Herbed Tomato Soup

If you like tomato soup and have tried to buy it at the supermarket, you've probably noticed that most have wheat flour in them.  Here's a recipe for homemade tomato soup that's so simple and quick to put together that you could do it for lunch.  I got the recipe from my niece Jeanee years ago.  If you like chunkier soup, you can use fresh tomatoes or chunky canned tomatoes.  If you like smoother soup, you can blend up fresh tomatoes or use canned crushed tomatoes.  Either way, this is quick and easy for the next rainy day when you want tomato soup with your sandwich.

Herbed Tomato Soup

3 Tbsp butter
1 Cup chopped onions
Cook together until onions are tender, but not browned.
6 medium tomatoes or enough to yield 4 cups or 1 28-oz can diced or crushed tomatoes
1 8-oz can tomato sauce
1 tsp dried crushed basil
1/2 tsp dried crushed thyme
1/4 tsp pepper
Add all to onions.
4 Cups Swanson chicken broth
Add to above and simmer for 30-40 minutes (or not if you're in a hurry --it still tastes great :)
