This is a simple and simply wonderful soup! I didn't have bay leaves but added some celery salt which was great with the tomato-beef flavor. The cloves were a pleasant surprise as well. Smells and tastes great, warm and comforting - thanks for sharing the recipe!
I made this for lunch today, since it is a cold day here in upstate New York. I added the following, 1 1/2 cups diced ham, 2 cans sliced Mushrooms drained, 1 tsp. garlic powder, salt & pepper, 1 tsp. Herbs of Provence. Before serving added a bit of Soy Milk creamer. Just a fantastic low fat soup served with crusty bread! Thanks so much for sharing. Ferryal
I made this for lunch today because the weather is getting cold. What a find. I love tomato soup and this had such a nice kick with the hot sauce and I loved the way the beef broth gave it a different flavor. Thank you annacia for a new wonderful soup that I will make over and over.. Wonderful, easy soup.. :)
This deserves 5 stars because it's easy, tasty and healthy! It reminds me of a spicy tomato soup. I made it with Spicy V8 because that's what I had...I'm sure it made it extra zippy. This is a very good low-calorie food for in between meals.
I made this in my crockpot on low for 4 1/2 hours. It really does warm your bones, and is very tasty, too. Since I'm not a hot cocoa person, this will be my regular "coming in from the cold" beverage! Thanx for posting!
I had to go out in the rain after work yesterday, so I threw this in the crockpot (high). I came in 3 hours later, and this really warmed me right up! Since I like a hefty mug, this would make 4-5 servings for me, but still remain lo-cal and diabetic friendly. Since it was still raining this morning, I brought leftover to work and had another mugful. Reheats nicely, still tasted great! Made for 1st Annual Holiday Tag Game. Thanks for sharing Annacia.
