This soup had a wonderful flavor. I roasted my tomatoes on the grill so I wouldn't heat up the kitchen. The skin was a little off-putting but do-able, especially since the taste was so good. My only regret - I didn't have more!
This is the most amazing tomato soup I've ever had! Don't let the cream be "optional". It really makes the dish. TRY THIS ONE!!! Trust me!!! Thanks Cindi!
This is wonderful.. I roasted larger vine tomatoes and some cherry tomatoes and some extra onions and garlic the roasting gave them an extra wonderful flavour that I think would definiately be missing if you skipped this step. I reduced the EVOO as well becuause half a cup seemed an awful lot and to be honest adding only 2-3 tablespoons worked great on my tomatoes so I didn't miss the rest of the oil at all. I also used home made chicken stock, that contained no salt and decided to omit the half and half to make this even healthier. I loved this so much that a few days later I made it again, a double batch this time and put it in batches in the freezer for some super healthy and tasty work lunches. Please see my rating system: an excellent 5 stars for a recipe that ticks all the boxes for flavour, ease of making, and healthiness. Thanks!
