    chefdonatella's Note:

    This is very tasty! For those who would love to taste a less sweet tomato soup, while losing none of the 'creaminess', this is it! I came across this while searching for something similar to "Atlanta Bread Company" tomato soup and have adapted it a bit to make it easier to prepare. This tastes even better than the $4 a cup stuff at the cafe if I do say so myself!! Enjoy. :)

      This definitely tastes like the Atlanta Bread Company recipe. I did make some changes though:

      I used olive oil to cook the onion instead of butter (and I didn't add butter later), 7 cups chopped fresh tomatoes instead of the canned plum, about 4 tsp dried dill instead of fresh, and 8 oz fat free cream cheese instead of heavy cream. Also, I would put less pepper than it called for next time. Wonderful recipe!

      Really flavorful, rich delicious soup. It is indeed very much like the one at Atlanta Bread Company, which is why I tried the recipe. The fennel flavor is pronounced--a plus in my book. It takes it from your ordinary tomato soup to something special. My hubby and all four children loved it. I'll definitely make this again.
