Tomato Soup Supreme
4-6 servings
print recipe

1 No 2 1/2 can (large can) tomatoes, well mashed, (I use a quart of home canned)
1 onion, finely chopped
1 carrot, finely chopped
2 stalks celery, thinly slices
2 tablespoons parsley, finely chopped
6 cups broth, chicken or vegetable
Salt and pepper
8 tablespoons butter
6 slices good bread, trimmed and cut in 1-inch squares
Grated Parmesan cheese

Combine all the vegetables and add to boiling broth. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover and simmer slowly, approximately 1 1/2 hours. Then force everything through a sieve. Return the liquid to the heat, add the butter and simmer slowly for 5 minutes.

Saute bread squares lightly in butter. Place in soup tureen and pour hot tomato soup over them. Serve in individual soup plates. Pass grated cheese separately.
