Homemade tomato soup is perfect on a cold winter day with a grilled cheese!
ground black pepper
14.5 ounces each diced tomatoes, undrained
In a large saucepan, heat butter over medium-low heat.
Add chopped onion and celery; cook, stirring, until tender.
Stir flour into the vegetable mixture, stirring until well incorporated.
Gradually stir in milk and add the sugar, salt, and pepper.
Continue to heat, stirring, until the mixture thickens and begins to boil.
Dice tomatoes smaller or puree in a blender or processor, if desired.
Heat tomatoes in a separate saucepan then gradually add them to the first mixture, stirring constantly.
For a smooth and creamy mixture puree soup or serve as is (I prefer to use my immersion blender and make it smooth)
