Friday….Family & Food

We thought we’d try something new this year (okay it’s taken us till February to get this all together) of every Friday sharing a favorite recipe or family tradition idea. We hope you leave a comment and share your’s too.

Here in Portland, it’s raining. Surprised? Often times we have soup at our house and this is a favorite.

                                       Tomato Orange Soup recipe

    1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
    1/2 medium onion, diced
    2 (14-1/2 ounce) cans diced tomato
    1 teaspoon Kosher salt
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon dried Thyme
    1 cup fresh orange juice
    1/2 cup heavy cream
 In a saucepan melt butter, add onion and sauté until translucent.  Add tomato, salt, pepper, baking soda and thyme.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered 15 minutes or until slightly thickened.  Puree in a food processor or blender and strain.
Return tomato soup to saucepan, add orange juice and heavy cream stirring constantly and bring to a simmer.  Adjust seasonings if necessary and serve hot.  Garnish by drizzling a small amount of heavy cream in an attractive pattern across the top of the soup and serve the tomato orange soup.
makes 8 servings

They like the soup! Hope you do too!
