Units Scale
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 cup celery, chopped
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup carrot, chopped
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 2 cans (14 oz) crushed or diced tomatoes
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 2 cups half & half
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. In a large pot, melt butter over medium-low heat. Stir in celery, onion, and carrot and sauté until veggies are soft, 10-15 minutes.
  2. Sprinkle flour over vegetables and stir until well incorporated. Mix in the rest of the ingredients and cover and simmer 30-45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Puree soup with an immersion blender or a regular blender until desired consistency (be careful, it’s hot!). Pour blended soup back into the soup pot.
  4. Stir in 2 cups half & half with 1/2 teaspoon curry powder. Don’t let this boil once you add the half & half. Season with salt and pepper if needed.
  5. Serve on its own or with some grilled cheese sandwiches or good artisan bread.


  • You can blend this as smooth as you would like or leave it more on the chunky side, it’s a personal preference here. I blend mine pretty smooth, just because Parker is picky about that stuff.
