Contest-Winning Fresh Tomato Soup Recipe

Publisher Photo
This recipe makes the freshest-tasting soup that I've ever eaten. Most people don't expect a tomato soup to be chunky, but everyone who has tried this soup finds it a pleasant change from the smooth, creamy variety. It's an ideal way to use ripe tomatoes and other fresh garden produce!
