Here’s the Dish!

Wintertime is almost here! Why not warm up with a tasty bowl of hot soup? The DuMont family loves to cook Fire-Roasted Tomato Soup, which was a recipe developed by my grandmother.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 4 T butter

  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped

  • 1 medium carrot, finely chopped

  • 1 stalk celery, finely chopped

  • 2 garlic cloves

  • 3 T flour

  • 4 cups chicken stock

  • 2 cans fire roasted tomatoes

  • 3 T tomato paste

  • 2 t sugar

  • cream, to taste


  1. Sauté onion, carrot, celery, and garlic in the 2 T butter, covered, until lightly browned (2 to 3 minutes).

  2. Sprinkle in 3 T flour. Stir for 1 minute.

  3. Add 4 cups chicken stock and 2 cans diced drained fire roasted tomatoes.

  4. Add 3 T tomato paste and 2 t sugar.

  5. Cook for 15 minutes partially covered and until tender.

  6. Transfer to blender in batches and blend until smooth.

  7. Return to pan. Add cream and 2 Tablespoons butter.

This dish is so yummy and a great meal to cook for the cold weather! It is simple to make and only takes 45 minutes total (15 minutes for prep time, and 30 minutes to cook).
