"Love this soup the curry makes it pop, just give it a diffrent taste. I add a whole fresh onion, chicken broth, garlic pepper, lawry's season salt and parsley. A little more butter and sugar for taste.....ohhhhh la la."

"I use this recipe for my soup and sandwich restaurant and received excellent reviews from customers the only thing different is instead of the flour and I add heavy cream to make it rich and creamy..the curry is what sets this apart from the rest IMO.."

"Made it once as directed and threw it out. Made a second batch without the curry and it was much better. Had to use tomato sauce and watered it down"

"This is hands down my favorite tomato soup to make and eat. It's quick, has simple ingredients and my entire family enjoys it. I also make homemade croutons to go on top. I shared my recipe for them on my blog. You can find it here:"

"Excellent tomato soup and so easy to make. I made a few changes to my liking, fried a 10oz. package of sliced baby brown mushrooms, added a packet of chicken bouillon, 1 teaspoon of dried basil and 1/4 of cup of cooking sherry. This is a keeper in my recipes and will be making this again & again.

Jane thank you so much for sharing this recipe."

"I thought this tomato soup was very flavorful but was a little heavy on curry for my liking. Next time I will try reducing the curry powder and adding some extra onion powder, which I thought was a little lost in the recipe."
