First, this recipe has a major omission...there's no liquid among the ingredients. You could almost eat this with a fork without the liquid. Add 1 can of water (or milk if you want it creamy), and you'll have a quick soup worthy of a five star rating. And a sprinkle of grated parmesan on the top would be a good addition when serving. I typically would have rated this lower than four stars because of the ingredient omission, but because this is the first review, I don't want to discourage anybody from trying this. The final result is something that tastes homemade, not something out of a can. It's good! ***** 8.9.16***** I'd almost forgotten about this recipe. Needed something really simple for a cup of soup, and once again, this didn't disappoint. (with the addition of the water as mentioned in original review).
Like others I modified this a bit but it was great! Changes I made were minor left out the rosemary (not something our family enjoys) and I added a can of diced Italain style tomatoes that I blended with an immerison blender before adding. I also added one can of no fat 1/2 and 1/2. Everything else was the same and this is a great soup.
Delicious! I doubled the recipe and added one can of water and one can of half and half. I also added some gnocchi and a smattering of red pepper flakes. I also used olive oil instead of vegetable oil. This was really fast and really good. Thanks for the recipe!
Great recipe but I usually just add basil pesto instead of the basil and rosemary. I usually have ajar on hand so this makes it a "pantry" quick soup when I don't feel like driving to the store in the months the herb garden is not producing. I also add a few dashes of Tabasco but both my husband and I add that to just about everything:) A very easy recipe and soup for someone not experienced at "homemade" soups.
this is a great soup. as with the 1st review add 1 can of water. I played with the recipe abit and added a can of chopped tomatoes. the results were souper! Every bit as tasty as the fancy tomato basil soup from a fine restaraunt.
Have done this for MANY years. I do omit the rosemary. I use whole or 2% milk and NO oil. I use either salt-free butter or Can't believe it's not butter. Only use about a tsp. Always approx tsp/tbls of sugar to cut acidity. Pairs great with grill cheese.
