I had myself convinced that my husband would hate this; he's not a big soup-eater to begin with, but the last time I made tomato soup it was a disaster. Not only did he love it enough to have THIRDS, but my one and two year olds begged for more! What a success in my house! I made pretty much as written, however I only had italian style stewed tomatoes instead of diced, and I omitted the shallots. We topped with a tiny bit of pesto, and served with chicken salad wraps. Fantastic!

The soup was good but not great. I just felt it did not have enough tomato flavor. The carrots seemed to overpower the tomato flavor. I have other tomato soup recipes that are better than this one.

I made this last night and followed the recipe exactly. My family and I were really pleased with it and will definitely be making it again. I served it with gruyere/sourdough grilled cheese sandwiches and a salad for an easy sunday dinner.

The perfect tomato-basil soup recipe! The whole family loved it - including my little girls. Changes I made: Left out shallots because I didn't have them; left out sundried tomatoes because I wanted to; used vegetable broth instead of chicken because we're vegetarians; used 6 basil leaves instead of 4. This was SUCH a great recipe - it's going in my permanent rotation. The only change I'll make next time is to leave out the sugar - I think the carrots add enough sweetness.

Absolutely delicious and easy to make! I will make another big pot of it and put it in my freezer for those cold winter nights. I'll bet it is just as good chilled. Smooth, creamy texture and not a hint of cream in it.

Would be 5 stars, but it was too thick for my taste. I ended up adding 1 additional cup chicken broth, and 1/4 cup white wine to thin it out a bit. I also doubled the sun-dried tomato & basil, for a little extra flavor. But overall, a fantastic tomato soup recipe!

Great, rich flavor. The consistency reminded me a little of marinara though.

THE very best tomato sooup ever and so easy. I left out the sugar, and added a teaspoon of cumin for the earthy taste and to cut the sweet of the tomatoes, I am not into sweet anything!! I will pass this recipe to my friends. 5 stars for sure!

Love this recipe. I made a couple of changes because I was in a hurry. I grated my onions and carrots prior to cooking so I didn't blend all of the soup afterwards. Also, I used skim milk instead of chicken broth for a creamy texture and is was fabulous. Thanks for the recipe.

Fabulous!!! Add another can of chicken broth and the consistency is great. Had to stretch for 6 servings though - will double next time. My very picky 8 yr old declared this his new favorite soup - way better than Campbell's!! :) Served with CL Garlic Thyme Foccacia - delicious!!
