"My husband and I have never been fond of tomato soup, but we think this one is out of this world," says Chris Nelson from Alliance, Ohio. "Since a friend gave me the recipe a while back, I've made a batch every week. It's good as an appetizer or paired with a sandwich or salad at lunchtime."


  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cups chopped seeded peeled plum tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh basil or2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


  1. In a large saucepan, saute mushrooms and onion in butter until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Remove vegetables with a slotted spoon and set aside. In the same pan, combine flour and broth until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened.
  2. Return mushroom mixture to saucepan. Add the tomatoes, basil, sugar, salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes or until heated through.
