Basil Tomato Soup
August 16, 2008

My husband and I both thought this was fantastic, and honestly better than our favorite soup joint. I wasn't a huge fan of all the fat though, so I used less than half of the butter it called for, and part half-and-half w/ part milk instead of heavy cream. It had great taste and was still creamy, but much healthier. For my own taste, I added salt, pepper, a little extra sugar, and sauteed onions and garlic. I think the additions and substitutions made it a five - added a lot of flavor.
