thanks for a good and easy recipe! <br/><br/>to make it less intense and sour I decreased tomatos, increased broth, and added some sugar; it worked nicely.

So clean and simple - what a lovely recipe. Thank you for sharing. I only had diced tomatoes on hand so I did hit it with the immersion blender in the end and it was creamy and perfect.

REALLY great recipe!!! Just what I was looking for. :)
The only thing I added was a little milk to make it more creamy......also processed it in a blender to make it really smooth.
Thanks for sharing!!!
