    "A quick and easy recipe for real homemade tomato soup like no other you've had before."

    INGREDIENTS (Nutrition)
    4 cups chopped fresh tomatoes
    1 slice onion
    4 whole cloves

    2 tablespoons butter
    2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon salt

    In a stockpot, over medium heat, combine the tomatoes, onion, cloves and chicken broth. Bring to a boil, and gently boil for about 20 minutes to blend all of the flavors. Remove from heat and run the mixture through a food mill into a large bowl, or pan. Discard any stuff left over in the food mill.
    In the now empty stockpot, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the flour to make a roux, cooking until the roux is a medium brown. Gradually whisk in a bit of the tomato mixture, so that no lumps form, then stir in the rest. Season with sugar and salt, and adjust to taste.

    That sounds delish - except garlic instead of cloves for me.
