– Olive oil – Unsalted butter – White onion – Garlic – All-purpose flour – Chicken broth – Canned whole tomatoes – Caster sugar – Fresh thyme – Salt – Ground black pepper

Step 1

 Heat the butter and olive oil in a 5-quarter dutch oven (or a large pot) over medium heat. Stir until the butter melts. Add chopped onion and garlic, occasionally stirring, for 5 to 8 minutes until the onion turns soft and translucent.

Step 2

Add all-purpose flour, and stir to coat evenly on the onion and garlic. Then, add chicken broth, canned whole tomatoes, sugar, thyme, and season the soup with 1/4 teaspoon of both salt and ground black pepper. Bring the soup to a simmer over medium heat, continually stir to prevent the flour from sticking to the bottom.

Step 3

 Cover the lid, reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 20 minutes.

Step 4

Turn off the heat and discard the thyme. Puree the soup with a blender or food processor until creamy and smooth.

Step 5

Mix Crème fraîche, finely chopped fresh chives and dill in a bowl. Whisk well. To serve, add one teaspoon of the cream mixture to the soup and sprinkle more chopped chives on top if desired.
