This "souped up" dish is my take on a traditional tomato soup. Fire-roasted tomatoes add a bit of heat and you can load it up with cheddar cheese, sour cream and bacon. — Cathy Hall, Lyndhurst, Virginia
"This hearty soup is loaded with vegetables, chicken, rice and herbs. When friends come for lunch, I warm up some garlic toast and make a meal of it," notes Gwen Shawley of El Mirage, Arizona. "It's a great way to cut back on calories and fat."
After bringing this six-ingredient soup to a teachers' function, I had so many requests for the recipe that it was published in the school newsletter. I serve the rich soup in mugs with a Caesar salad and crusty bread.—Sarah Perkins, Southlake, Texas
"Fresh herbs really make the difference in the flavor of this low-fat vegetarian soup," notes Lisa Blackwell from Henderson, North Carolina. "It tastes especially delicious when it's could out," she adds.
"My husband and I have never been fond of tomato soup, but we think this one is out of this world," says Chris Nelson from Alliance, Ohio. "Since a friend gave me the recipe a while back, I've made a batch every week. It's good as an appetizer or paired with a sandwich or salad at lunchtime."
Chris Christopher of Albuquerque, New Mexico found an easy way to jazz up canned tomato soup. “I created this recipe after eating some tangy tomato soup in a restaurant,” she explains. “They wouldn't divulge the ingredients, so after a few tries, I came up with this version. It is so simple and very tasty.”
