Ingredients

2 1/2 cups strained tomatoes 625 mL
3 cups chicken broth, low-sodium, luke-warm 750 mL
6 tbsp cornstarch 50 g
3 1/2 tbsp butter, unsalted 50 g
Tabasco sauce to taste [optional]
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Method

  1. Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat. Add the cornstarch 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.
  2. Add the tomatoes and mix well. Add more broth if the soup is too thick. Cook over medium heat 5 min. Season with salt, pepper, and Tabasco sauce to taste, then serve.
