Heat a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add canola oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add onion, cumin, kosher salt, and paprika to pan; cook 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Increase the heat to medium-high. Add minced garlic; sauté 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in tomatoes and chicken stock; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in half-and-half.
Place half of tomato mixture in a blender. Remove center piece of blender lid (to allow steam to escape); secure blender lid on blender. Place a clean towel over opening in blender lid (to avoid splatters). Blend until smooth. Pour into a large bowl. Repeat procedure with remaining tomato mixture. Top with parsley and freshly ground black pepper.

Way too runny. When I noticed that the recipe calls for almost equal parts stock to tomatoes, I kind of figured it'd turn out this way, but I didn't have the ingredients on hand to try a different recipe. Having said that, it had much better flavor than a canned tomato soup thanks I think to the sauteed onions and garlic.
This is by far the worst tomato soup I've tried. The quantity of chicken stock to tomatoes should have been a clue. Very little tomato flavor and way too much onion flavor. I can't even finish what I've made, I'm throwing it away!
This is a nice, quick, weeknight dinner that can be easily made with ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. I usually just use some low sodium chicken broth instead of stock (since that's what I usually have on hand) and decrease the salt to 1/8 tsp accordingly. I like that it has a more interesting flavor than regular old Campbell's tomato soup. This makes the perfect comfort meal with a grilled cheese sandwich and a salad - yum!
Decent soup. Easy. I, in an effort to avoid dairy, substituted full coconut milk instead of half and half. Worked well. Nothing bad to say about this....but really, it's just average soup. I gave it 4 stars because it was exactly what I thought it would be. Perfectly fine! I put it with the menu of panko cod and soba noodle salad....interesting menu.
