Reviews for Simple Tomato Soup
"Quick, easy and Oh so good! First time I ever made tomato soup, and it was the BEST!"
"Oh goodness is this good! Canned soup will never compare! The only tweak I made was I only had a 32oz carton of chicken broth, but I like a thicker soup anyway."
"I used plain diced tomatoes, and italian seasoning mix and fresh basil, and then tossed in approximately 9oz of cooked cheese ravioli! Never would I have imagined how easy it is to make homemade tomato soup!"
"Is the amount of sodium correct for this recipe? Seems waaaaay out of line."
"This was a good base soup recipe. I did thicken mine up a bit more and added freshly ground black pepper and fresh chopped basil. I also made parmesan crisps to float on top. The second time I made this I added some roasted red peppers. This took it to the next level. Delicious!!!!!"
"Super easy and very good flavor. I didn't read the reviews beforehand, but I agree that it is too thin. Next time I make it I will take steps to thicken it up a bit."
"I love this soup! I use organic tomatoes and organic vegetable broth instead of chicken broth, it turns out SO yummy."
"I halved the recipe to make four servings just for me. It was excellent and I'll be making it again. Lots of possible variations depending how spicy one likes it. I tossed in some extra dried basil and oregano and a shake of freshly ground pepper. Using yellow onion was fine. Very tasty."
"This was super easy and delicious! I added 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt and 1/2 teaspoon oregano to give it a little extra flavor. I will be making this again!"
