Rich Tomato Soup

My husband doesn't care for traditional tomato soup, but he loves this rich, fresh-tasting version. It has an unexpected chicken-broth base and appealing chunks of tomatoes. It's an excellent first course and a great light lunch with a salad and garlic bread.

    Takes some time to chop up all the veggies, but well worth it. Loved the flavor of curry mingled with the tomatoes and vegetables. Excellent with grilled cheese sandwiches.

    I have made this soup several times and we love the fresh homeade taste of it. It's perfect to use up our abundance of garden tomatoes. The only part of it that is not my favorite is peeling the tomatoes. Other than that, it is actually pretty simple to make.
