"Another 'made from scratch' family favorite. The hardest part is cutting all of the tomatoes! I like to use Roma but any tomatoe you like will do. The half and half really adds great texture to the soup so don't cheat and add skim milk or other low fat milk. It will really take away from the great taste of the soup. The touch of cloves adds a special taste that will not be missed. A must have in this soup!"

"This is Great soup! I've enjoyed making it. I also used chicken stock and it turned out wonderful. This is the second time I made this recipe in the last two weeks. the only difference is I doubled everything to store the extra. Extremely delicious. Thank You!"
"Full, rich flavour blesses the taste buds in this delicious cream of tomato soup. Instead of using fresh tomatoes, I used diced ones with garlic & herbs. "
"This was a wonderful soup. I made this at the end of summer, so changed a few things. I used a combination of tomatoes, Roma, Black Tiger, Yellow tomatoes, and just plain tomatoes. I roasted the tomatoes with olive oil, herbs and coarse salt first @ 375 degrees for 30 minutes. Used a bit less stock and followed the recipe. I also doubled the recipe and will make another batch while my tomatoes are still fresh."
"Delicious! I did it a bit different to save time. While the onions were simmering, I was simmering the tomatoes (which were canned by me but could use store canned tomatoes as they are already cooked). Then after adding the flour I added a bit of the simmering tomatoes and then put it all into the pot of simmering tomatoes. Added the stock (I also used chicken - gluten free!) and then simmered for just a bit, added the spices, cream (mimiccream lactose free) and voila! A lactose free, gluten free version and in half the time!"
"Great soup. I didn't have vegetable stock so I used chicken stock. Yummy!"
"Very good soup, it had a very fresh flavor to it. I will make this again throughout the winter. Thank you."
