Simple Tomato Soup Recipe

I created this recipe on a bad weather day. My husband, Mic, and my daughter, Liz, ask for this soup constantly. Whenever I send it with my daughter for lunch at school, I always send some for her friend, too. It is pure comfort food.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 5, 2013

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!
