Creamy Tomato-Dill Soup

It’s Sunday again and time for another pot of soup! This week I’m sharing one of my very favorites: Creamy Tomato-Dill Soup. Tomato is often paired with basil, but I love dill weed so this soup is perfect for me. Enjoy!

Zesty soup perfect for cold weather!


Creamy Tomato-Dill Soup
Makes 8 servings.

2T olive oil
2T butter
1 onion, diced
2 carrots, peeled and diced
2 celery ribs, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
¼c. Flour
4c. chicken broth
1 28oz. can chopped tomatoes
1 28oz. can crushed tomatoes
1T dill weed
1t thyme
1t tarragon (optional)
½ – 1t crushed red pepper flakes (1t will be fairly spicy.)
1c. heavy cream
Salt & pepper to taste
2T chopped fresh parsley, to garnish

In stockpot, melt butter and olive oil over medium-low heat. Add onions, carrots, and celery and cook until softened, about 10 minutes. Add garlic and flour and cook, stirring for a couple more minutes. Slowly add chicken broth, ½c. at a time, stirring well after each addition to avoid clumping. Add tomatoes, herbs and red pepper. Heat to a simmer, cover, and cook over low heat for 30-40 minutes, until vegetables are soft. Stir in cream and season with salt and pepper to taste. The soup may be served chunky or smooth – I like to puree mine with an immersion blender. Garnish with fresh parsley before serving.

    Looks delicious Sarah! I’m going to substitute some of my fresh tomatoes out of my garden for this one. One thing I’ve never done is add the heavy cream to my tomato soup…sounds so good. Especially since Jericho is sick and coughing. 🙂

      Tomatoes from your garden will be so great! I love creamy tomato soups. I’m one of those people who always used a can of milk instead of water when making Campbell’s tomato soup. These days I like to buy the cream in glass bottles from Lady-Lane Farm in Mulino, OR. Their Jersey cows spend their days on pasture so the cream is a great source of natural vitamin A & D, as well as conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). So the cream really gives this soup a nutritional boost! You can find Lady-Lane products as New Seasons Market and Whole Foods.
