This recipe takes the humble tomato and creates a simple, but elegant soup that is truly fit for a special dinner party. However, this batch was made especially for my dil who was craving some tomato soup and couldn't find any in the store that didn't have sugar. I made this soup and substituted Splenda for the sugar, but will decrease the amount next time I make it. Since I only got to sample a couple of spoonfuls, I will definitely be baking this again soon. I used plum tomatoes and was surprised that I didn't have to strain this soup after pureeing it with my hand blender. EXCELLENT recipe CountryLady!!!

What an elegant soup! The garlic flavor mixed so beautifully with the tomato flavor. I shredded a bit of parmesan over the top and toasted some fresh roasted garlic bread. What a meal!

This is so yummy! It is good without the cream as well. I served it to some women at a function and they all really liked it.

This soup is just delicious. I halved it, as I only had about half the tomatoes called for on hand. I used a mix of yellow, red and mixed color tomatoes, and 3 large cloves of garlic. I didn't add the cream, but I did add about two tablespoons of chopped fresh basil to the onions. Used my immersion blender and didn't strain. I liked the random small chunks of stuff floating around... This soup is creamy without the cream, and just perfect on a cool, early fall day. Love it, and I know I'll make it often.

I used roma tomatoes and followed the directions exactly except I omitted the cream because I did'nt have any. It was so good. Thanks for posting this recipe.

WOW!!! The best tomato soup ever... roasting the tomatos and garlic brings out such a fresh, sweet taste. My kids...ages 4, 3 and 1 1/2 were fighting over the first cup I brought them to taste. I used an immersion blender to blend it right in the pot and I didn't strain it, either. Added some fresh basil in the last few minutes. I was a little distressed by the 40 lbs of tomatos my husband picked from the garden yesterday until I tried this... will freeze more. Thanks so much!

Made exactly as written and it turned out great. I didn't have to use food processor, I used my handheld blender. Makes alot of soup, so I hope it freezes well.
