Directions

  1. Melt butter in stockpot. Add onion and cook for 5 minutes until softened.
  2. Stir in tomatoes, carrots, chicken stock, bay leaves, cinnamon stick, parsley, and thyme. Bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes until vegetables are tender.
  4. Cool soup and puree in a blender or food processor (hand blenders are best - that way you don't have to transfer the soup out of the pot).

  6. Season soup with salt and pepper. Serve.
