Very simple and tasty. A western interpretation of an Indian (Rajasthani) recipe.

Ingredients

2 1/2 cups strained tomatoes 625 mL
3 cups chicken broth, luke-warm 750 mL
7 tbsp white flour (all purpose) 50 g
3 1/2 tbsp butter, unsalted 50 g
3/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce 3.75 mL
6 slices bread, whole wheat, for the croutons 220 g
3 tbsp olive oil, for the croutons 45 mL
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Method

  1. Prepare the croutons.
  2. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat. Add the flour and beat well with a whisk or wooden spoon. Cook for 3 min, stirring constantly and taking care not to let it burn. Slowly add the broth, while stirring thoroughly to avoid lumps. Cook over medium heat 4-5 min.
  3. Add the tomatoes and mix well. Add more broth if the soup is too thick. Cook over medium heat 5 min.
  4. Season with salt, pepper, and Worcestershire sauce to taste. Serve with croutons.

pretty good - had to add sugar because 1 tsp of Worcester was too much for us

This was absolutely delicious...better than Cambell's and I've always loved Cambell's. I added 1/8 cup sugar to cut the acidity. I used diced tomatoes which I strained and then pureed smooth. It was lovely! UPDATE: I FINALLY found strained tomatoes and I no longer need to pure anything....weeee...:)
