I don't really have a story for this other than one day we came home from work for lunch and Mother Hubbard's cupboard was quite bare with the exception of an excessive amount of cheese. Grilled cheese it had to be and grilled cheese requires tomato soup. —Summer of Eggplant
28 oz. can fire roasted tomatoes
water or vegetable stock
medium Spanish onion, chopped
salt & pepper
In This Recipe
Heat the oil in a pan and saute the onions until almost translucent, about 10 minutes.
Add in salt and pepper and smoked paprika and saute for 1 more minute.
Add in tomatoes and water, bring to a simmer
Add in sugar and simmer for 10 minutes.
Puree to desired consistency with an immersion blender or standing blender. Sometimes I puree the entire batch or sometimes I only puree half of it for a heartier texture.
