Tomato Dill Soup

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Bridget Leigh

This soup is very fresh and light tasting. I've always served it warm, but I imagine it would be nice as a chilled soup on a warm day, too. Substitute vegetable broth for the chicken broth and this is a lovely vegetarian soup.

Excellent soup. Perfect blending of flavors. I used fresh thyme, and fat-free milk rather than cream. I left out the tarragon. My daughter took a tupperware home with her, and she's fussy. Thank you for posting.
