It All Comes Together - TOMATO SOUP

My daughter invented this wonderful Tomato Soup and it is really excellent! In the throes of the usual "what shall I make for supper?" I decided to make her soup, but I used things I have on hand, many of which I have grown and preserved. At the end of this post you will find the complete recipe including the "tweaks" that I applied. In the meantime, here are the pictures.

1/2 cup of real butter melting in the 2 gallon stock pot:

Garlic cloves, being minced:

Egyptian onions taken to the chopping block:

Onion and garlic are sauteed in the melted butter:

Home canned tomatoes, chicken stock and goat milk:

Basil, home grown, chopped and stored in raw apple cider vinegar in the refrigerator since last summer:

Everything except the milk is in the pot and simmered for 1/2 hour with the lid on:

Add the milk and then blend the soup:

The soup is now in a 1/2 gallon jar in the refrigerator and I will reheat it for supper (and probably a lunch or two.)


1/2 cup real butter (I used salted)
1/4 pound cleaned and chopped Egyptian Onions
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 quart home canned tomatoes
1 pint chicken stock
1.5 cups canned goat milk
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 Tablespoons preserved basil
1/2 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt

Melt the butter in a large, heavy bottomed pan

Sautee the onions and garlic until soft

Add tomatoes, chicken stock, pepper, basil and salt. Simmer for 1/2 hour.

Add the goat milk and either using a stick blender or a stand blender, blend until smooth.

Serve. Makes about 1/2 gallon of soup. Like so many dishes, this is best the next day. It freezes well also.

I will serve this with "Erin's Muffins." This post is linked to Simple Lives Thursday!


  1. I LOVE that soup. The best tomato soup I've ever had. This morning I made the girls grilled cheese sandwiches for breakfast. I normally make tomato soup to go with them if I make them for lunch or dinner, and Amelia knows that, so she told me, "I don't want soup!" She's gotten so picky lately. She used to love that soup.
