I was looking for a lowfat soup to take to work for lunch. This fit the bill! Because I thought the tomato juice and chicken broth contained enough salt, I didn't add the sea salt. Also, I used a 10-ounce bag of fresh spinach instead of frozen, and I added about a cup of my fresh garden tomatoes - yum! Thanks, CL!
This soup is absolutely delicious! Although it takes a while to make, it's very easy and doesn't require much attention. The flavour is amazing! I will definitely be making this again. Due to a typo (that has now been corrected) in the recipe I used too little tomato juice, but it still turned out great (probably a bit thicker than it should have been). The only other change I made was to use brown rice for more nutrition. Highly recommended.
Made this for TOTM Soup Fest tag game and I'm glad I did. I too haven't had Tom Horton's tomato soup but I found this to be delicious. I cut the recipe in half and used fresh spinach and next time I think I will try using some pasta. Thank you for submitting this recipe.
We really enjoyed this soup after I tweaked it a bit. Not really sure what I did wrong but it came out really salty. I think next time I will use low sodium chicken broth and omit the salt until I am sure it won't be too salty for my family. Just added a little milk to thin it out and make it a little creamier for the kids. The kids say its a keeper, we will be making it again in the future.
Thanks for the recipe. I love tomato soup and am happy to have the spinach in it! Definitely a bit spicy for us, will cut back a bit next time. A little parmesan and tomorrow's lunch is set!
Delicious!! If I had this soup at a restaurant, I would never guess that it was so low cal. DH requests this soup all the time. This from the man who claims he doesn't like soup!
Superb! I was pressed for time so I made it only an hour (instead of 2) by boiling in every step that called for simmering. I subbed about 5 oz tomato paste + water for tomato juice. I only had about 1/2 t of white pepper so it wasn't spicy but I topped it with black pepper and fresh parmesan. Hit the Spot! It was a touch salty so I'll cut back on the sea salt next time. I will also stick to the amount of rice called for because I used more (wanted to get rid of leftovers) and it thickened it a bit too much, though it was easily fixed by adding water. This is going into my regular repertoire of easy, healthy and delicious dinners!
This was just wonderful. I used orzo instead of the rice. Will make again for sure but with mini meatballs as well. Thanks for the great keeper!!!!!
This didn't turn out very well at all for me. It may have been my own fault since I used low-sodium V8...which is vegetable juice-- not tomato juice-- and that probably affected the flavor. I followed everything else exactly but it tasted awful...it was WAY too peppery for me and the other spices weren't working for me either. My suggestion is to start with 1/4 tsp of white pepper, taste it and add more if you want it spicier. Maybe without the pepper overpowering it the other spices might be good. I ended up adding half and half to tame it down a bit...and then I could see the potential for this to be good so I will try again with tomato juice and less pepper next time!
Very good. I think I will use a little less seasoning next time, but this is pretty good.
