"Perfect for fall weather, or when your tomato crop is taking too long to turn. Freezes BEAUTIFULLY!"
Serving Size: 1 (315 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
"I doubled the recipe, using 2 large onions (instead of scallions), extra garlic, and about a pound of very meaty bacon ends (trimmed of excessive fat). Kielbasa works wonderfully with this, too.
To make it heartier, I'll add a can or two of cannelini beans or Great Northerns.
WONDERFUL FLAVOR! A dollop of light sour cream finishes it beautifully.
I've got about 200 pounds of green tomatoes, and I think I'll make this a time or two before they ripen.
"A friend "gifted" me with lots and lots of green tomatoes and this was one of the recipes I picked to use them. While this wasn't to my taste, the giver of the tomatoes loved the soup so our rating averages out to a 4. "
"This soup was very good and a great way to use up some of those green tomatoes left in the garden. I made a few adjustments: used onion instead of scallion, 2 cups broth and 1 cup water, simmered it for over an hour (wasn't fond of the crunchy texture) added 1/4 cup milk at the end and then pureed with a stick blender. I sprinkled extra bacon on the top to serve. It was very well received! Thanks for posting!"
"Excellent. The whole family loved this. Used onions and added just a bit of curry powder. I have a vegetarian, so I cooked some veggie sausage to use. When the tomatoes were soft, I pureed the soup then stirred in the sausage. FABULOUS! Would be even better with a dollop of sour cream on the top. Thinking about the possibility of adding white beans or diced, cooked potatoes with the sausage next time. Just scrumptious-thanks for sharing."
"GREAT SOUP!!! I added carrots and one red tomato. Gave it a wonderful fall color!"
"very good hun.....halved the bacon though...It was nice to find one that didn't call for milk and/or potatoes... and I personally added wayyyyy more pepper..but that's just me lol thanks"
