4 cups chopped fresh tomato
1 carrot roughly chopped
1 onion sliced
4 whole cloves
2 cups vegetable broth
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp all purpose flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp white sugar
Pepper to taste
In a pot , over medium heat, combine tomatoes, onion, carrots, cloves and vegetable broth. Bring them to boil for about 20 minutes to blend all the flavors. Remove from heat and run the mixture through a blender or food mill into a large bowl . If using food mill discard any stuff left over in the food mill. In a empty pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the flour to ale a roux, cooking until the roux is medium brown. Gradually whisk in a bit of the tomato mixture, so that no lumps formed and stir in the rest. Season with sugar, salt and pepper and adjust the taste.
