Reviews for Oh-So-Easy Tomato Cream Soup
"easy, delicious...we just LIKE it!"
"My family did not care for the taste of this."
"I added just 1/4 of a bar of cream cheese and my soup was creamy enough. If I was to make it again I would put in even more tomatoes for zest"
"I have rated this as written.We made the following changes to the recipe, which we rate a 3-star:1. Used 1 cup milk and 1 cup chicken broth for the 2 cups milk.2. Used a 3 ounce package of cream cheese, NOT 8 ounce (I think that this is a typo in the recipe).3. Left out the salt because canned tomatoes are salted already.4. Used 2 tsp dried basil instead of the fresh.5. Heated until warm, not boiling. Ours did not curdle.There are so many more delicious tomato soups out there."
"I followed the directions, but maybe I blended it to long or something, mine turned out very frothy..It was not good. Not going to make again."
"I'm thinking this recipe would taste good and have a more pleasing texture if sour cream was sub'd for the cream cheese"
"really simple. I used garlic, basil and oregano spiced tomatoes."
"Maybe it was because I used neufchatel cheese and 2% milk (to cut the fat), but this came out terrible. The cream cheese taste/smell was so overpowering, I couldn't eat it."
"The soup curdled when it was barely getting warm. I blended it a second time, but it curdled yet again. It tasted good, just looked funny..."
"Very delicous, but a little messy. Very creamy and rich, I still had tiny bits of tomato in mine, but I like it that way.Merry Tasting"
"This recipe needs to state that if you get it too hot, it will curdle. Mine curdled and it wasn't even heated to a low simmer! I fixed it by re-blending it, but you really need to heat it over low JUST until warm. Also, it's WAY too creamy and I only used 1/2 the cream cheese called for. It had mostly cream cheese flavor and not much tomato. I wouldn't make it again this way."
"I am going to try this soup but use fat free evaporated milk and the 1/3 fat cream cheese."
"This soup was good, but it was a little too creamy (and I even used fat free milk and cream cheese!). I added another 8 oz can of tomato sauce and an additional 1/4 cup of basil. Tasty!"
"This was truly Oh-So-easy! A little high in fat content. Next time I will use 1/3 fat Cream Cheese and skim milk. I loved it and will continue to make it!"
"Great! I added a can of Mexican Rotel to spice it up."
