Pioneer Woman - Tomato Soup With Sherry

5 tablespoons melted butter
1 medium onion, diced
1 (46 ounce) can tomato juice
2 (14 ounce) cans diced tomatoes
1 tablespoon chicken base or 1 tablespoon chicken bouillon
3 tablespoons sugar
1 cup cooking sherry
1 12 cups half-and-half or 1 12 cups heavy cream
12 cup chopped fresh basil
2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
crouton (optional)


In a soup pot, saute diced onion in butter until translucent. Decide how chunky you like your tomato soup. I like to process one of the cans of tomatoes briefly in the food processor to chop up the tomatoes more finely. You can process one or both or neither. To the pot, add canned tomatoes, tomato juice, sugar, chicken base or bouillon, and pepper and stir. Bring to a near boil, then turn off heat. Add sherry and half-n-half or cream and stir. Add parsley and basil. (or, you can save the basil to sprinkle on top of each bowl of soup). Add salt & pepper if needed to your taste. Top with croutons if desired.
