Perfect for fall weather, or when your tomato crop is taking too long to turn. Freezes BEAUTIFULLY!

Top Review by Montana Ma

I doubled the recipe, using 2 large onions (instead of scallions), extra garlic, and about a pound of very meaty bacon ends (trimmed of excessive fat). Kielbasa works wonderfully with this, too.
To make it heartier, I'll add a can or two of cannelini beans or Great Northerns.
WONDERFUL FLAVOR! A dollop of light sour cream finishes it beautifully.
I've got about 200 pounds of green tomatoes, and I think I'll make this a time or two before they ripen.
