Low-cal, fresh, and fabulous! Wonderful to make in the summer when local tomatoes are at their peak at the farmer's markets.

This makes a truly wonderful soup. I followed it pretty closely but when finished I did add some brown sugar, to sweeten just a bit more and I also added garlic pepper to my own bowl. It is very pretty when blended.

I had a mountain of tomatoes so I made a couple of batches of this soup for the freezer. We ate it for supper tonight with Grilled Cheese Sammies. It is delicious. I recommend it to all.
