Reviews forSimple Tomato Soup
"easy enough and very good"
"I didn't care for this at all. Guess it's just not my kind of tomato soup."
"I'll FOR SURE do this recipe. really love Tyler Florences' roasted tomato soup recipe-think found on foodnetwork website-love a great heartwarming tomato soup with oooey goooey grilled cheesey sandwich-I'll report results when I unbox my new crockpot-wanna smell it cooking away all day plus think it adds richer flavor-home made seasoned croutons will top it"
"I am so glad I found your recipe and intend to make it tonight. I love a good tomato soup but most of the recipes I've tried have tasted, in my opinion, more like marinara sauce than soup. This one sounds exactly like what I've been looking for. Maybe it's the addition of the chicken broth. I'll probably add heavy cream or half and half but that's just personal preference. Thanks for sharing!"
"Can this soup be can"
"Is the amount of sodium correct for this recipe? Seems waaaaay out of line."
"This was a good base soup recipe. I did thicken mine up a bit more and added freshly ground black pepper and fresh chopped basil. I also made parmesan crisps to float on top. The second time I made this I added some roasted red peppers. This took it to the next level. Delicious!!!!!"
