    I changed a few things for what I had on hand. Turned out really good. I used a large can of tomato soup then filled the can with half milk, half broth. Threw in canned tomatoes all the spices they listed and a touch of brown sugar and cinnamon. Had the perfect spice with a tinge of sweetness. All my veggies were sauted and put in to boil. It was great with a grill cheese for a rainy day supper. Will definitely make it agian!  -  27 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is the tomato soup I've been searching for! So rich and filling without any cream. I also added a can of diced tomatoes.  -  12 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Oh wow. This was AWESOME. This is the tomato soup I've been searching for...highlights the flavor of veggies, no milk or cream. The sugar made the tomato flavor so lovely. The only things I had to omit were the veggie bouillon, parsely, and I omitted the salt b/c it was plenty salty. For the Italian seasoning, I used 1/2 a ts each of oregano and basil. Other than that, I followed the whole thing perfectly. Made 6 hearty servings that don't need accompaniment. Just b/c it's tradition, I plopped a little plain yogurt on top...unnecessary. I ate it with bread and a little cheese...also unneccessary.  -  19 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
