This is one of my families favorites. I use the tomatoes that we can from the garden, and it does not need straining.

It was very good. I added 100 gr of tomato concentrate to make it a bit thicker.

We thought it was great, and definately a change as far as a tomato soup. The Lemongrass definately came out and flavored it wonderfully. Although, I'd recommend slightly less than 3 stalks.
