MY REVIEW

"I made this with slight changes. Omitted the rosemary, used Italian flavored tomatoes. I used plain almond milk. I served with toast, not croutons."

MY REVIEW

"Rich and tasty but perhaps could use a bit more spice (black pepper perhaps)."

MY REVIEW

"Am I right to assume that the soy milk used is the plain variety with no added sugar or flavoring like vanilla?"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 27, 2011

"This was just OK; made with powdered milk and water instead of the soy milk. We have had better tomato soup and my husband thinks canned tomato soup is better."
