Prep: 20 minutes • Cook: 40 minutes • Serves: 8


8 slices French baguette, cut 1⁄4-inch thick

3 teaspoons Our Family unsalted butter

1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese

2 teaspoons Our Family extra virgin olive oil

1 medium onion, diced (about 1 cup)

1 medium carrot, peeled and diced (about 1 cup)

1 celery rib, diced (about 1 cup)

2 cans (14.5 ounces each) peeled, whole, no salt added tomatoes

1 cup low sodium tomato juice

1 teaspoon Our Family pure granulated sugar

1⁄4 teaspoon Our Family ground black pepper

1 teaspoon dried thyme

1⁄4 cup half and half

Fresh thyme leaves for garnish




1. Place oven rack 4 to 5 inches from broiler; preheat broiler. Place bread slices on rimmed baking pan. Divide and spread 1 teaspoon butter over bread slices, and sprinkle each with cheese. Broil 3 to 5 minutes or until tops are lightly browned. 

2. In 4-quart saucepot, heat remaining 2 teaspoons butter and oil over medium heat. Add onion, carrot and celery, and cook 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add whole tomatoes, diced tomatoes, tomato juice, sugar, pepper and thyme. Bring to boil, and reduce heat to a simmer. Partially cover and cook 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes to prevent sticking. Stir in half and half, and remove from heat. 

3. In batches, transfer soup to blender, and blend until puréed. Transfer puréed soup to large bowl before puréeing next batch. 

4. To serve, ladle soup into individual soup bowls. Top each with a Parmesan crouton and garnish with thyme leaves.
