I think I like the 6 ingredient Tomato Basil soup (on this website) better than this one. Might want to try adding some sugar to it.

This soup is awesome! You will never eat canned tomato soup again once you taste this. I made a lot of it and froze it since we had an abundance of fresh tomatoes from our garden. My son asks for it regularly.
