  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 small onion finely chopped
  • 1 stalk celery finely chopped
  • 1 carrot finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 14.5 ounce cans diced tomatoes
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  • Melt the butter in the large pot over medium heat. Add the onion, celery, carrot, and garlic, and cook until softened. Add the flour and stir until incorporated, then cook 1-2 minutes. Add the tomato paste and stir to combine.
  • Add the chicken broth, diced tomatoes, sugar, and nutmeg to the pot. Bring the soup to a simmer, cover, reduce the heat, and simmer 15 minutes, until the vegetables are soft.
  • Puree the soup using an immersion blender, or in batches in a regular blender with the lid open to let steam escape. If desired, leave 1/4 - 1/2 of the soup unblended for a chunkier texture.
  • Add the heavy cream, salt and pepper, and taste the soup. Adjust seasonings as needed.
