What a wonderful idea. I made a few changes: one whole tomato (because it was a Roma) a garlic clove pureed with the onion and tomato and because I prefer Cream of Tomato soup I stirred in 1 Tablespoon heavy cream just before serving. Excellent lunch idea for moms who don't want PB&J! Read More

This soup was alright. very healthy and tasty (I love tomatos and vegetable juice) but can be a little too zesty without crackers or some sort of bread to go with. Will probably make again but onlyl in place of cambell's tomato soup that I eat like twice a year. Read More

This was great especially since I was alone for the weekend and needed a quick dinner. I did add about 1 clove of minced garlic to the mix just to give some more flavor. Really tasty and really quick! Read More

Ridiculously easy and you would never be able to tell!! I doubled the recipe and it came out to exactly 2 bowls of soup. I just put the onion tomato and V8 in my food processor for about 30 seconds and then heated it on the stove for about 5 minutes. Afterwards I realized I should have just dumped it into bowls and put it in the microwave for a minute or two to make it even easier and less mess. I can't get over the fact that I can make FRESH tomato soup in under 5 minutes from start to finish! You could add other ingredients to modify it such as some fresh basil more garlic a little mascarpone cheese would taste great too. It was much better than any canned or prepared tomato soup I have bought from the grocery store and I loved that the consistency was thick just from all the raw vegetables in there. Great recipe!! Thanks! Read More

So simple and so good that it leaves you asking yourself "Why didn't I think of that"? I turned this into tomato soup for two and kept the amount of onion at 1/4 vidalia onion. I opted to use low sodium V8 and added some garlic fresh basil and a splash of white wine vinegar. A great base for add-in's to suite your tastes! Read More

This recipe was inspiring and quite clever. I did modify it a bit more to my tastes but i think that's what is so wonderful about cooking. I added half of a red bell pepper into the puree blend added some chopped red potatoes and gave also gave it more of an italian flavor with various spices. Since I am also a lemon nut I went ahead and used lemon pepper as well. This is a fabulous recipe with endless possiblities. Read More

Absolutely delightful! So much better tasting than the canned stuff which is loaded with sugar starch and salt. I disagree with those who found it flavorless or bland. This is a celebration of the simple glorious flavor of burstingly ripe tomatoes period. Very low in calories and naturally fat free. Heart-healthy stuff with a nice dose of lycopene and vitamin C galore! The second time I made this I put in a dab about 1/2 tsp of Minor's chicken base which couldn't be tasted exactly but which lent a nice depth of flavor and salted it just right. Additionally I like to peel and seed the tomatoes before I blend them as I find both to be a detraction. What you taste is exactly what you get uncomplicated and wholesome. Read More

This was really good. I also used 1 plum tomato. I added a little garlic also to the puree. It may have been my tomato but I also had to add a little sugar because the soup was a little bitter. Finally I wanted my soup a little creamier so I added a couple of table spoons of butter to thinken the mixture. It was tasty and I will keep it in mind for the future although it did make a lot of mess. Read More
