    Great thick soup! I was craving tomato soup and grilled cheese and this soup looked appetizing. However, I'm trying to watch my carbs so I switched out the all-purpose flour and instead used almond flour/meal. I also switched out 2% milk and used a low carb milk. Lastly, I didn't have an onion on hand, but I did have dried minced onion that I mixed with water and used (I reduced it to 1 tsp though). You could see the flour/dry milk grains in the soup, but I'm not sure if that was the fault of the almond flour/meal or if that would happen again if I followed the recipe without changes. If I make this for other people, I will definitely not make any changes to the recipe.

    Excellent flavor! For a smoother soup, I put it through the blender after adding the milk. I also used fat free milk instead of 2%. I will definitely make this again.
