A lot of work for a pretty bland soup. We added additional salt, pepper and dill, but it still wasn't a winner in my book.

This was a very bland soup and I really felt like I wasted my time and garden fresh tomatoes!

This is a very creamy soup that is easy to make, loaded with flavor, & tastes wonderful. My mom couldn't get enough of it :) This will be one that I will make a lot more.

What is the purpose of whipping the cream if it is going to be stirred in and cooked?
