This is a yummy soup. I actually found it off of The Pioneer womans site. Its to die for!!!
6 Tablespoons Melted Butter
1 whole Medium Onion, Diced
a couple minced garlic cloves
1 bottle (46 Oz.) Tomato Juice
2 cans (14 Oz. Cans) Diced Tomatoes
1 Tablespoon (up To 3 Tablespoons) Chicken Base
3 Tablespoons (up To 6 Tablespoons) Sugar
1 pinch Salt
Black Pepper To Taste
1 cup Cooking Sherry
1-½ cup Heavy Cream
Chopped Fresh Parsley
Chopped Fresh Basil
Sauté diced onions in butter until translucent. Then add canned tomatoes, tomato juice, chicken base, sugar, pinch of salt, black pepper and stir. Bring to a near boil, then turn off heat. Add in sherry and cream and stir. Add in parsley and basil to taste.
Adjust other seasonings and serve with yummy, crusty bread on a cold blustery, dreary, depressing, rainy, snowy day.
I was being lazy so I bought a loaf of Albertson's garlic bread. It was yummy with the soup.
-I sent my husband for the sherry and he came back with WHITE WINE so i used it and it still tasted delicious! My 9 year old daughter LOVED it.
