This soup is easy and fast to make. It was a bit bland so I added a second can of tomato paste. That did the trick. Instead of 3 cups of half and half I used a cup and a half then made up the difference with 2% milk to make it less rich and less fattening. I don't think garlic belongs in tomato soup so next time I'm leaving it out or greatly minimizing it. With my modifications it turned out quitry tasty. I'll be making it again for sure. Read More

This soup was so good even my most picky of eaters loved it. My friend who hates tomatoes was even able to eat a bowl full. Thanks for sharing the recipe I can't wait to make it for a holiday party or a nice dinner party. Read More

I didn't have any canned diced tomatoes so used crushed tomatoes instead which also meant I didn't have to bother with the blender. Wonderful flavor I'll never buy the canned stuff again. Read More

This was very good. Bit too much pepper but I can always tone that down next time. My fiance said it was good as well but it reminded him of tomato bisque. Our son said "Mmmmm " and then asked for more. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

I've made this soup many many times for a quick dinner. I quick saute some onion and garlic in some wine and throw that in the blender with the tomatoes and puree that before I cook it; instead of pouring hot liquid into the blender after it's cooked. I also cook the tomato paste for a few minutes so it will caramelize slightly. Then I pour in the broth pureed tomatoes 2 cups milk 1 cup half-and-half Worcestershire sauce; and let that come up to temp. Then I add in a little soy sauce molasses (instead of white sugar) garlic powder onion powder pepper oregano and a little paprika. I serve it with fresh greens boiled eggs olives chick peas and whatever else I have in the fridge; as kind of a tomato-soup-bar for dinner lol. I've made this recipe as written as well and it's good on it's own too. Read More

I did not use the sugar pepper and half and half (I used 10% lactose free coffee cream). Even with the changes the soup was amazing. I am now going to try using it to make my cabbage rolls. Will let you know how they turned out. Read More

Intending to make homemade cream of tomato soup I had already begun a roux with butter cornstarch and flour when I decided to look up a tomato soup recipe for spice combinations and ratios. I stuck with my roux but used the rest of the recipe as written and it's now part of my collections: great balance of flavors. Thank you! Read More
