Don't let the "spicy" adjective scare you away from this tasty soup. It's not "spicy" hot, just flavorful. The recipe is slightly adapted from "The Moosewood Cookbook."
Spicy Tomato Soup
2 tbsp. olive oil
1-1/2 cup onion, minced
3-4 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dill
1 1-lb., 12-oz. can crushed tomatoes
2 cups water
1 tbsp. honey (opt.)
2 medium tomatoes, diced
Heat olive oil (and butter) in pot. Add onion, garlic, salt, dill and pepper. Stir over medium heat for about 5 to 8 minutes until onions are translucent.
Add canned tomatoes, water and honey. Cover and simmer over low heat for 20-30 minutes.
About 5 minutes before serving, stir in tomatoes.
