My favorite tomato soup. I won't eat it any other way. Real tomatoes
I don't understand how this got 5 stars. It did not tast good at all. I wasted time and money with this recipe. :(
This soup is sooo yummy with a grilled cheese sandwich!!!
I've been making this for years, ever since it came out in the magazine. My family loves it and it's so easy to make. I usually put the cream cheese in a blender and add just enough soup to puree until liquid then pour back in with the soup. So creamy and good. Please try it.
My husband says this is the best tomato soup he's ever had (and he'll be 60 this year!). I took the advice of another reviewer and added the pepper jack cheese and made a few minor changes as follows: used 1 cup of half & half, then 1/2 a cup of whole milk (instead of 1-1/2 cups of milk). Used "Hunts Diced Roasted Tomatoes with Garlic" instead of plain ol' diced tomatoes, also used the full amount of paprika and ground basil. I added 5 slices of chopped up pepper jack cheese from a 12 ounce pre-sliced package. When this was all mixed and done, I used my handy-dandy inversion blender to make the soup smooth as silk before serving This was super rich and delicious! Thanks!
Delicious! So easy and quick, but tastes like you've spent a lot of time and effort. I always sauté some minced garlic in with the onions as well as add cheese periogies (the frozen Mrs.T brand) at the end and let them simmer for a few minutes before serving. Along with grilled ham and cheese, it's an easy dinner that everyone really enjoys.
This was very good - even without the cream cheese. I would increase the basil by another half to 1 tsp. and also the garlic powder to about 1/2 a tsp. to give it a little more punch.
My family has been making this soup for years, and it's a favorite. It's easy to make and very flavorful. I've had many requests for this recipe. It's a winter time staple in our household. Enjoy!
