Reviews for Garlic Tomato Soup
"I find this recipe a little short on flavor, despite using a few extra garlic cloves. I'll attempt this recipe again, but I'd like to try it with half-and-half, instead of whipping cream, and I might throw in some onion."
"This soup was ok. I wouldn't make it again."
"Yummy. If you love garlic and tomatoes then this is the recipe for you!"
"WHipping cream is the way to go, as I used milk the 1st time to decrease the fat content and it was too runny/watered down. I also used half of the spices, as the garlic gave it a great flavor without them. I found them a little bit overpowering.-MEliss"
"I used a 28 oz can of tomatoes and pureed 1 cup of the tomatoes and used the rest diced.I LOVE this soup! Will make again for sure, it was quite delicious, just the right amount of seasoning. I was told I smelled like garlic the next day though : )"
"I used a quart of canned tomatoes and pureed the other quart. I used the cuisinart hand blender to puree after adding the cream. It was sooo easy and absolutely delicious!"
