Sundried Tomato SoupSubmitted by: MICKIE27
IntroductionMaking your own soup at home is a good way to keep the sodium considerably lower than what you find in pre-made soups. The sodium per serving in this soup isn't negligible, but it's about half of what you'd find in most soups at the grocery store.

1 1/4 Cups Vegetable Stock
1/2 a small onion, cut into 1/2" pieces
1 small carrot, cut into 1/2" pieces
1 small celery stalk, cut into 1/2" pieces
1 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried marjoram
1 TBSP unbleached, all-purpose flour
1 can (796mL/28 oz) whole plum tomatoes
2 TBSP sundried tomato strips** "julienned" (cut into
thin strips - you can often find sundried tomatoes
pre-packaged like this at the store)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
**The sundried tomatoes in this recipe were NOT packaged in oil, they were packaged dry. If you do use oil-packed tomatoes, make sure to adjust the nutrition facts accordingly.
For those using a pot on the stove:
1. Put all ingredients into large pot. Stir to mix, then put on the cover.
2. Bring the mixture to a boil on high heat.
3. Turn the temperature down (medium or medium-high depending on your stove) and cook for 30 minutes.
4. After this time, check to see if the vegetables are tender. If yes, continue to the next step; if not, give them a few more minutes, then check again.
5. CAREFULLY pour the soup into a blender. Don't put the lid on yet. Give the soup time to cool down before you blend it or you'll have a hot, soupy explosion all over your kitchen.
6. Once the soup has cooled, put on the blender lid and start at a low speed, gradually raising to a higher speed and then blend until smooth.
That's it! You now have soup!
