Meet the Cook: "Delicious" and "filling" are the words friends I've served this soup to use to describe it. Alone, it makes for a tasty lunch...or you can have it with a sandwich or crackers. Like an even heartier soup? Simply cube some of your leftover cooked chicken or roast and add. I've long enjoyed trying new recipes on my husband. He's a former agriculture minister of Saskatchewan...and my taste tester of 52 years! We have four grown sons and 11 grandchildren. -Frances McFarlane, Winnipeg, Manitoba

"This is a wonderfully delicious soup which I have been making for years! It tastes so fresh and pairs well with grilled cheese sandwiches. Canned chopped tomatoes are good if fresh is not available."

"So good! I did make a few changes, I added about a tbsp of minced garlic, another 1 tbsp of butter, I threw in some mushrooms, I also had beef broth on hand instead of vegetable or chicken. I replaced 1 cup of broth with white wine, and used 1/2 cup of sherry at the end instead of the broth. I think the wines deepened the flavor. I served with a crostini. This would be an amazing fall dish on a breezy night. Mmmm!"

"We make this recipe or one just like it, all the time. We love it. I think "tomato soup" is a bit of misnomer though, it's more of a tomato based vegetable soup in our eyes. We too like to chunk some Chicken in it and the canned chicken from costco is perfect, just one can for this recipe is great."
