About this recipe: This creamy tomato, celery and carrot soup is hearty enough to be a meal on its own! It's perfectly seasoned with fresh basil and oregano.
This is one of my favorite soups to make for "comfort food" meals. I do increase the basil quite a bit (I throw in a HUGE bunch) and I usually do not use the full amount of milk. I add just enough to give it a creamy mouth feel without adding too much fat. When I make this, I pair it with Italian Grilled Cheese sandwiches. - 29 Nov 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Wow! This recipe is delicious. The consistency is just right, cafe style. I used 5 cloves of garlic, a lot more basil (nearly half a cup), and only a cup of heavy cream. Turned out fantastic. Thank you, Sara, for this great recipe. We loved it and will certainly be making it again and again. Great with garlicky grilled cheese! - 20 Jan 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Really nice soup. I sauted the veggies in stock and used non fat milk instead of cream to lighten the calories. It is still very delicious and tomatoe-y. I did add more basil. I liked rthis had ther veggies in it as well as the tomato sauce. Very easy and also tasted good cold - 06 Jan 2013 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
