Fresh Tomato Soup

    Tomato soup shouldn't be bland, which I felt this dish was. Maybe being made from plum tomatoes did not add the "tomatoey" flavor I was looking for. This was not a bad soup, just not one I'll make again. A good recipe for a quick evening meal or lunch.

    I love this recipe! I add a carrot to help cut the acidity, add extra basil and leave out the salt. It's also easy enough to make after work. I want to can a batch so I have it on hand in the pantry to use instead of canned tomato soup that isn't near a good as this. Tonight I'm going to add a rind of Parmisiano Ressiano to it...yumm!

    Ummm...where is the flavor?? I added the whole can of tomato paste, some pizza sauce (probably 1/4 cup), 2 cloves of minced garlic AND a tablespoon of red wine...there is very little to NO flavor to this soup. There is another tomato soup recipe from this site I made before that my husband said, as he was stirring and tasting this pot..."The other tomato soup you made was DELICIOUS...I wonder what's wrong with this one??" Yeh...'nuff said. This one is NOT a make-again if you want flavor to your soup.

    I used roma tomatoes from our garden but I didn't like how it turned out. Mine was very runny. Are you supposed to seed the tomatoes first? Or was this because of the roma vs plum? I don't know, but I won't make it again. There must be something better.

    This is a great recipe that I've already made three times in the past month! Just as the name suggests this soup tastes wonderfully fresh. If you like a basic tomato soup, you'll love this recipe. It's a great base for being creative and adding other fun ingredients to give it an extra kick.

    Strong, good tomato soup. Fresh flavors.

    As the name of the recipe implies...this is all about the clean and pure tomato taste. It can come across a little bland, but you can add more basil, some garlic, or even a little pepper for some kick. It's a good, basic recipe that you can tweak as you see fit but starts with a very fresh base.

    My wife loves tomato soup so I made it for her lunch. She really liked it and so did I, we'll be making this again. We used vine ripened regular tomatos and more pepper. I thought it had plenty of flavor. The yogurt was a nice touch.We had grilled pepperjack sandwiches with it.

    This is the best tomato soup recipe I have ever made! I added about 1/4 cup of diced carrots and blended the yogurt (I used nonfat plain) into the whole batch rather than using it as a garnish. This is a great soup to make ahead and take to work!

    Surprisingly delish! I added a couple of dashes of Tabasco and it really livened it up. I was skeptical about this because the ingredients are simple and the recipe is easy, but it is really wonderful. I portioned it out in one cup servings to take for lunch. Yummy.

    This recipe was delicious. All ingredients are fresh and its not too salty or overpowering. Very simple tomato soup recipe that takes the basics and makes a refreshing side to a variety of meals. I used roma tomatoes from my grocery store and the soup was not too runny or bland. I did not have fresh basil on hand so I used 2 tsp of dried basil from my spice rack.

    I'm going through boatloads of old CL magazines and adding earmarked recipes to my recipe file online. My notes on the magazine page (back in 2008) said we liked this soup but I did add chipotle chili powder, garlic salt, cumin and some chopped cilantro. 9/24/13 - with an abundant tomato harvest this year I've made this soup twice since I made that posting; the first time I used all Black Krim tomatoes and put it in the freezer (for a cold, snowy day!) and tonight I used regular tomatoes with a "Kale broth" I had in the freezer from last year, some chipotle and garlic. YUM!!!! And only 58 calories....how can you lose?

    Made with in conjunction with Melanie's Garden Tomato Soup - sautéing the veggies and adding a hot pepper from our garden. I used my immersion blender in the stock pot I cooked in and skipped the yogurt all together. My husband said we should keep track of this one. I finished up all the tomatoes from our garden tonight :-)
