    breezermom's Note:

    This recipe is a new take on the old Southern tomato soup...it doesn't contain potatoes! Very yummy, and it can make a full meal with a nice grilled cheese sandwich. ** Note: Prep time includes cooling time before pureeing.

      I love a good tomato soup and this was both delicious and easy! I did cut some fat by only using 3 tbsp of butter ans only 1/2 cup cream, but otherwise stuck to the recipe. I thought it was perfect. I'll be making this again. Thanx!

      Followed instructions as listed except for using only 1/4 cup cream as that is all I had left. Nice tasting soup, thanks for sharing your recipe.

      I really enjoyed this soup. The flavor was delicious and the soup was very fast to make. My can of tomatoes was 28 oz so I cut back on the water. I put in 2 cups only and it was a very nice consistency. I found the sugar was the right amount, it added a very nice but not too much sweetness. Had it for lunch with my friend and froze the rest. Thanks for sharing breezermom, this is a keeper. Made for Holiday Tag '09
