Delicious tomato soup. I used a 14 oz. can of tomatoes and 5 fresh tomatoes which I pureed in the blender before cooking. I ran the hand blender through just before adding the cream to smooth it up and I put a 1/4 tsp each of pepper and dried basil in when I added the cream. Warming the cream in the microwave was easier than the stove for me. Will be making this again for sure.

If it's ease and not time you're worried about this is a great recipe. Whip it up and then let it simmer for an hour. My family does not like the chunks of tomato in their soup, so we just blended the diced tomatoes first. All I had in my pantry was Italian flavored tomatoes, but that worked just fine! No one complained!

I added salt, pepper, garlic and a touch of truffle oil. It was so delicious! I will be making this again and again.

This is wonderfully delicious. I modified the recipe by using diced tomatoes with garlic and onion because that's what I had in the pantry. It's great on a cold, windy day, served with a small salad and cornbread. What a feast!
