I have had a hard time finding a good tomato soup recipe, until this one. Super quick and easy to make. I only substituted vegetable broth for the water, and. I added some grated cheddar cheese on it, just before serving. That makes it a rosy cheddar. Delish

We loved this soup. I doubled the recipe and used a combination of stewed and crushed tomatoes. Didn't puree the finished soup, but I did puree the stewed tomatoes before I added them to the pot. I did add a bit more kosher salt and brown sugar than indicated in the doubled ingredients and finished the soup with a little half

Loved this! So quick and easy. I added some garlic and used chicken broth instead of water. Looking forward to the leftovers for lunch tomorrow!

Good tomato soup. I made it along side patty melts. The husband loved it. I did add a bit more salt and pepper as I thought it needed more seasoning.

Only one minor change to this one- I used dried celery flakes because I have a ton on hand. I made the soup and froze it in single servings. I defrosted it and reheated it on the stove. I liked the consistency and flavor, and you can't beat how fast it goes together.

While we enjoyed this, next time I'd add some more water and milk or half and half. It was two much like a sauce or as someone else said "V8" for us. We prefer a creamier tomato soup. That said, we'll definitely make it again, with a few tweaks.

The taste was very savory! It reminded me of a V8 drink. I added some fresh basil for added spice. I didn't care for the chunky texture. Even after putting it in the blender, it was a little too thick for me. So I put a cup of so in a soup bowl and added a half cup water for a "soup-like" texture.

This recipe is savory and delicious. I used diced tomatoes with oregano and garlic because that's what I had here, and I followed the recipe for the rest of the seasonings including more oregano, etc. I will be making this again! I also served it chunky instead of pureeing it. Yummy!
