Red Soup

In my day, there were cooks who refused to use the Cuisinart to slice onions. They said it ruined the flavor. I remember inventing this recipe to avoid that restriction.

Once you have the basic recipe down you can vary it a lot. Try adding spinach, garlic, cauliflower or summer squash. The only thing I've tried that didn't work well was potatoes.

Bring to a boil:
1 huge can (1 gal?) whole tomatoes
1 huge can tomato sauce
~16 c. water

Use a food processor to slice:

3-4 carrots
1 bunch celery

Add to soup.

Use a food processor to mutilate:
2 huge onions (~3c)

Chop and add:
1 small head broccoli
3 green peppers

1 1/2 c. red wine
salt and pepper to taste

Serve when the carrots and broccoli are cooked (tender).
