This is a fantastic recipe hot or cold. I'm sure you will want to double it, I always do. Garnish with sour cream, if desired.

Right up until the last minute I was tempted to add some cream or half-and-half to this for creaminess and extra richness. I resisted the urge and was rewarded with a bold tomato soup that for some reason was creamy without it. I used tomatoes I had put up from my garden rather than canned (which doesn't necessarily make this any better if you use a good quality canned tomato) fresh dill rather than dried and no bay leaf. The dill flavor was not noticeable but this was delicious nonetheless. Hubs said it was reminiscent of a soup he really enjoys at the Purple Cafe and Wine Bar in downtown Seattle high praise indeed.

I used this recipe as the base for a delicious tomato soup but I used lots of fresh tomatoes as well as canned ones as well as fresh dill weed. After cooking it and putting it in the food processor I added some plain yogurt and heavy cream to make a creamy tomato dill soup. It is delicious! Read More

good soup but I made a couple of changes. First it didn't have enough dill so I doubled that and I used vegetable broth instead of chicken broth. I made one more big change because I wanted it to be richer. I added 1/2 cup of half and half. I think next time I might try heavy cream next time. for the tomatoes if you have half of them be diced and the other half be crushed there isn't a need to puree it. Read More

This soup is fantastic; I have made it many times and have passed along this recipe to many friends who also rave about this simple-to-make soup. I make triple batches of this soup in a slow cooker and freeze individual servings. This soup does freeze well and it's a real treat to have on a cold day. Fresh-tasting and hearty this soup makes a terrific low fat and nutritious meal with some whole wheat crackers or warm crusty bread. I have found that using butter instead of margarine brings the soup to a new dimension. Read More

I adapted this for a friend on a fat-free liquid diet. I didnt add the sauted onions but put in a bit of both garlic powder and onion powder. I used fat-free broth diluted a bit, pureed with a hand blender then strained it to make it clear. Not only did it meet his dietary restrictions, it was delicious! He called me asking for the recipe because his wife was eating all "his" soup! Read More

Fantastic soup! Have only had it cold so far. Wonderful body good tomato flavor with just enough dill to add another dimension. The only reason I down-rated this recipe was because it called for canned tomatoes...imagine how good it would taste with red summer-ripe tomatoes! (However maybe the more concentrated taste of the canned ones actually work better!) I ended up substituting two large fresh tomatoes for one of the cans of broth. A colleague commented on how good the soup smelled...unusual for a cold souop to be so aromatic! Read More

I found this recipe a couple weeks ago and I've already made it twice. It is amazingly good. There is a restaurant in town here that serves tomato dill soup that everyone raves about....well this recipe is better. It's also a very inexpensive and satisfying meal with some fresh bread or a bagel. I leave the bay leaf out because to me it overpowers the dill and garlic flavors. Oh and I double the garlic and instead of the full can of chicken broth I do a half can and a half can of whole milk...............CAN'T SAY ENOUGH ABOUT THIS RECIPE!!! Read More

I made this back in May and forgot to review it. This was very good and I still have some leftover in the freezer. I used fresh dill and regular diced tomatoes rather than peeled. I used my emersion blender and pureed this right in the pan. Couldn't have been easier. Read More
