Liked this with and WITHOUT the cream. A very refreshing summer soup. I ended up cooking this a lot longer than the directions stated, but that may be partly due to my lagging burner, lol. I really prefer to use cornstarch rather than flour for thickening and I had some trouble with the tomato paste/flour mix-perhaps just my inexperience with flour, but a bit annoying. In the end, however, the taste was terrific; the texture was very nice also, after I broke down and whirred in the blender for a few seconds before I sieved it (I did remove the skins first). I am always looking for ways to use up my bumper crop of tomatoes, and this tastes great even if it is a bit hard to make! Thanks for sharing!
