The seasoning in this homemade tomato soup really sets it apart. I prefer to serve it hot but it can be served cold as well. From a September 2006 edition of Parade Magazine

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain and chop the canned tomatoes.
  2. Melt the butter with the oil over low heat in a heavy saucepan. Add the onions and cook until softened, about 10 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes. Sprinkle the allspice over the onions and cook for another minute.
  3. Add half of the dill and cook over low heat, stirring, for about 5 minutes. Add the chicken broth, tomatoes, and sugar. Add salt and pepper to taste. Simmer, partially covered, for 20 minutes.
  4. Puree the soup in a food processor. Return to the pot and stir in the remaining dill. Add salt and pepper if necessary.
  5. Serve hot, or chill several hours or overnight and serve cold. Garnish each serving with a dollop of sour cream.

Just SUPER! The whole family loved this soup! I omitted the sugar and did not drain the tomates and cut a bit back on the broth; I also used dried dill instead. This is definitely a keeper and will be made again for sure! Served with cheese sandwiches.

Outstanding! I made a half recipe and used a heaping tablespoon of dried dill added all at the same time. I used the juice from my tomatoes and cut them with kitchen shears right in the can. I also used part broth, part water and bouillon. I used my immersion blender right in the pot and got a wonderful consistency...not too thick, not too thin. The only change I would make would be too add more allspice next time. It's good with and without the sour cream. We enjoyed it with grilled cheese sandwiches made with sourdough bread and I liked dipping mine in the soup...makes me think it may be good with croutons. Freddy Cat says hi!

This is good. I added more sugar and changed the dill to fresh parsley as that is what I had on hand and out of a preference. I used a homemade chicken broth recipe by Betty Crocker. Did not serve it with the sour cream. Made for Ramadan Tag.
