Heirloom Tomato Soup - Instructions

Our" target="_blank">
Grilled Fontina Cheese Panini is the perfect accompaniment to this soup - just the
way to celebrate the season's finest produce.

Pass the tomatoes through a tomato press according to manufacturer's instructions.
Pass the solids through the press several times to extract as much juice as possible.
Set aside.

In a large saucepan over medium heat, warm the butter. Add the shallots, lightly salt
and sauté, stirring occasionally, until tender and translucent, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir
in the tomato paste and cook until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the flour and cook,
stirring frequently, until the flour is lightly toasted, 1 to 2 minutes.
