"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"

"We really like it with V-8 instead of regular tomato juice, leaving out the curry powder."

"I wanted to try this but found after I started that I didn't have curry. Decided to use the onion powder and basil. Quick, easy and delicious with a slice of beer bread, perfect for a very cold Ohio winter evening."

"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: http://his-girl-friday.com/2015/01/07/cold-hands-warm-heart-and-the-best-tomato-soup-recipe-ever/"
