Directions:
In a medium-large saucepan, sauté onions in small amount of butter until onions are clear. Add chopped tomatoes and sauté for at least 10 minutes, until the tomatoes are soft. Add salt and pepper to taste. Simmer on low heat stirring occasionally.

In a separate saucepan, make roué with the butter (let butter just begin to brown before adding flour) and flour. Add milk and whisk until completely smooth and thick. Add hot thickened milk to tomatoes. Stir until completely blended. Add basil.

Serve with crusty breads, cornbread , or crackers.


VARIATIONS:
In a deep skillet, brown 4-5 slices of thick-cut bacon. Remove bacon when crispy; drain on paper towel. Sauté the onions and then tomatoes in the bacon drippings. Add butter if there isn't sufficient bacon fat. Continue as above. Sprinkle crumbled bacon on soup in bowels.

After tomatoes/onions are warmed through, add fresh baby spinach leaves to the saucepan, before adding milk.
