For a chunkier soup, use 28 ounces of canned diced tomatoes. Another option is to use one 14.5-ounce can each of crushed and diced tomatoes.

Step 1

In a large pot over medium heat, warm the butter. Add the onions and cook until translucent, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add the garlic and flour and whisk until thick, about 1 minute.
