    Best soup I ever tasted  -  07 Jan 2014


    Wow! Easy and by far the best homemade tomato soup I have ever had. I did use garden tomatoes though. I used 3lbs of fresh tomatoes, cored, peeled and then I let them run in the food processor on high for 4 minutes. I used that instead of juice. It had a few seeds that didn't get pulverized but it certainly didn't hurt the soup at all. Also, I added about 1/4 cup of fresh basil chopped up at the point I added the tomato and I let that cook in with it and I used a pinch of baking soda and a tablespoon of sugar to help reduce the acid in the soup. I didn't do it this time but you can also substitute whipping cream for the milk to make it a little more rich. All I can say is awesome Julie! A frozen pizza darn near takes longer to cook than this.  -  21 Aug 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Who needs canned soup!!! This is delicious and easy to make. I add the milk after I make the roux and then add a 28oz. can of crushed tomatoes instead of tomato juice. It makes the soup much heartier and leaves nice little tomato bits. I've made this 3x and shared the recipe once...I won't buy canned tomato soup again when this is so easy and good.  -  22 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
