After craving tomato soup, I decided to make my own. My sister Joan likes it chunky-style, so she doesn't puree. Serve it with a grilled cheese sandwich. —Marian Brown, Mississauga, Ontario

"Good tomato soup. I made it along side patty melts. The husband loved it. I did add a bit more salt and pepper as I thought it needed more seasoning."

"Only one minor change to this one- I used dried celery flakes because I have a ton on hand. I made the soup and froze it in single servings. I defrosted it and reheated it on the stove. I liked the consistency and flavor, and you can't beat how fast it goes together."

"While we enjoyed this, next time I'd add some more water and milk or half and half. It was two much like a sauce or as someone else said "V8" for us. We prefer a creamier tomato soup. That said, we'll definitely make it again, with a few tweaks."

"The taste was very savory! It reminded me of a V8 drink. I added some fresh basil for added spice. I didn't care for the chunky texture. Even after putting it in the blender, it was a little too thick for me. So I put a cup of so in a soup bowl and added a half cup water for a "soup-like" texture."

"This recipe is savory and delicious. I used diced tomatoes with oregano and garlic because that's what I had here, and I followed the recipe for the rest of the seasonings including more oregano, etc. I will be making this again! I also served it chunky instead of pureeing it. Yummy!"
