I love this soup! I am dairy sensitive so I use light coconut milk in my recipes that call for milk or cream. About half the calories as whole milk, thick and creamy and it a recipe like this, you cannot detect any coconut flavor. (Thai makes a wonderful organic lite coconut milk that you can buy in the Asian aisle in most supermarkets.)<br/>Thanks for a great recipe!
Very good! Thick and delicious. I don't know why anyone would voluntarily eat canned soup when this is so easy to prepare. I used 3 cups regular tomato juice and crushed tomatoes with basil because that's what I had on hand. Puréed with a hand blender. Just noticed Kitten's note about V-8 and will try that as well. Will make this again today, the second time in a week, which is unusual for me. Hopefully I'll have some left for individual containers for the freezer. My boys love tomato soup with grilled cheese and enjoyed this very much. I also made some quick microwave croutons and tossed a few on top with some Parmesan cheese for me. Very yummy. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
Ok, I love tomatoes. Well, I realized I loved them after having my first home grown one about 5 years ago. I wanted to love tomato soup but I didn't (yes only had canned). My bf wanted tomato soup and i thought "duh, homemade"! So I looked it up on food.com and WOW! Yeah this was insane! My 10yo loved it too! We had it with grilled ham and cheese on our first cold night of the year. Only thing I did different was I added the last of my grape tomatoes I had to pull of because of the freeze. I think I added about 10. Don't think that was enough to change the flavor t but I will try more tomatoes and less juice next time after reading JustGemsOfNZ's comments.
AWESOME!! Followed the directions exactly and I used V-8. EVERYONE LOVED THIS!! My daughter asked for the recipe and said she doesn't even like tomato soup! I used a hand blender to puree the onion and garlic. I thought it was just the right consistency. Highly recommend the garlic croutons to go with it! Thank you Kittencal!!
I made this last week and found myself craving the leftovers! I thought the flavor was absolutely perfect. The only adjustment I plan to make is not using the flour to thicken it. I used half and half instead of milk, so between that and the thickness of the tomatoes and juice I believe it will have the right consistency. The only complaint was from my husband regarding the thickness. I'm so happy to have such a wonderful recipe that is so much better tasting and a lot less expensive than the canned!
Nice hearty soup. I would recommend adding more peeled tomatoes for better texture.
Very good! I omitted the red pepper and then added some half and half at the end to make it a little more creamy. Next time I will puree the batch for a smooth soup. Thanks!
Excellent! I used chicken broth instead of milk and added a little thyme. Perfect soup for a cold night.
I'm not going to rate this because I used diced tomatoes instead of crushed tomatoes (and then pureed it when done). However, I did not care for the flavor of this soup. It was just very strong and too sweet. I was just looking for a more creamy recipe. Maybe if I added more milk that would have helped. I also used a vegetable juice from Trader Joe's and maybe that's the flavor I don't like.
