Easy Homemade Tomato Soup

I guess this isn't technically "homemade" as in making it completely from scratch, but I personally think it beats the plain condensed tomato soup from a can.

Easy Homemade Tomato Soup

1/2 small onion (about 1/3 cup), chopped
2 Tbsp butter
1 28 oz can diced tomatoes
1/2 tsp baking soda
pinch of sugar
1 cup chicken stock (I use 1 cup hot water plus 1 tsp Chicken in a Mug flavouring)
1/3 - 1/2 cup cream

Melt butter in saucepan. Add onion and saute until clear. Add diced tomatoes, baking soda, and chicken stock. Bring to boil and then simmer for about 15 minutes. Remove from heat. Heat cream on medium power in the microwave just until hot (not boiling). Add cream to soup and blend with an immersion blender until desired consistency. Serve.

*Note: Today, I accidentally used a 28 oz can crushed tomatoes instead of diced tomatoes. So, I used 2 1/2 cups of chicken stock instead of 1 cup, and it still turned out just fine!*
