Reviews forQuick Tomato Soup
"5 stars for taste. I used Spicy V-8 as that is what I had in the cupboard, omitted sugar entirely & used my own curry powder mix. I loved it. I don't know why I haven't been using V-8 juice all this time to make tomato soup! It went together in less than 10 minutes & so good on a cold day. Next time, I will get reduced sodium V-8."
"Made a batch and about threw up. If I wanted TOMATO CANDY, I would have looked up tomato candy recipes. I looked up TOMATO soup recipes. I have made good tomato soup and this was not it! I even reduced the sugar. You DO NOT use sugar for tomato soup. You use baking soda to reduce the acidity and good quality tomatoes for the natural sweet flavor. So, I tried again. NO sugar this time. I won't make it again. Blech! Wish I could give zero stars."
"Recipe sounds great. I'll give it a whirl and add a grilled cheese sandwich to go along with it------favorite childhood combo."
"Made it once as directed and threw it out. Made a second batch without the curry and it was much better. Had to use tomato sauce and watered it down"
"We really like it with V-8 instead of regular tomato juice, leaving out the curry powder."
"This is hands down my favorite tomato soup to make and eat. It's quick, has simple ingredients and my entire family enjoys it. I also make homemade croutons to go on top. I shared my recipe for them on my blog. You can find it here: http://his-girl-friday.com/2015/01/07/cold-hands-warm-heart-and-the-best-tomato-soup-recipe-ever/"
"This wasn't to bad it seems to be missing something, I just couldn't figure it out. But we dipped our grilled cheese in it and yum."
