I first made this recipe and those at home looked at me. Second time I had to make a double batch they loved it so much. I work outdoors and it has been cold here but I know I can whip up a hot pot of soup in minutes.
I tried this recipe last night and it was delicious!!! The only thing I did different was blend mine with a stick blender instead of leaving it chunky. My son won't eat tomatoe chunks! LOL It was great with grilled cheese. Getting very cold here in Wisconsin, this recipe is a keeper!
I use Italian stewed tomatoes, 2 % milk, fresh basil and a touch of cayenne pepper in lieu of the Worcestershire. I also add a pinch of salt and eliminate the sugar. After cooking, I blend this in a blender until smooth. I top this with a tsp. of sour cream and a sprig of fresh basil.
This recipe looked easy and tasty (what could be bad with butter?). I like to use what a recipe calls for on my first attempt, so I used the full fat version of 1/2 & 1/2 (what could be bad)? I didn't want to kind of like it and then later, l=blame butter and milk fat free products. I used crushed tomatoes and pureed them in the blender. I did add fresh, minced garlic to the onion mixture (because I add it to just about everything!).
Yummmm-o! Great creamy texture, and a rich (read: buttery), full flavor. We are tomato soup aficionados and my daughter loved it. It really did only take 10 minutes!
A keeper. Thanks!
I used fat free half and half to cut back on the fat in this recipe. It was good, but next time I think that I will use tomato sauce in place of the diced. I like that texture better. All in all a good recipe that I would make again.
