Ingredients

2 1/2 cups strained tomatoes 650 g
3 cups vegetable broth, luke-warm 750 mL
7 tbsp white flour (all purpose) 50 g
3 1/2 tbsp canola oil 55 mL
4 drops Tabasco sauce 0.63 mL
6 slices bread, whole wheat, for the croutons 220 g
3 tbsp olive oil, for the croutons 45 mL
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Method

  1. Prepare the croutons.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the canola oil 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.
  3. Slowly add the broth, while stirring thoroughly to avoid lumps. Cook over medium heat 4-5 min.
  4. Add the tomatoes and mix well. Add more broth if the soup is too thick. Cook over medium heat 5 min.
  5. Season with salt, pepper, and Tabasco sauce to taste. Serve with croutons.
