Tomato Soup Recipes

There are many tomato soup recipes you can make from scratch. This thick and creamy fresh tomato soup is sure to be a hit with the entire family. Getting all your veggies from this soup is an insurance policy that your family will get their daily requirements. All the veggies go in the blender and soup is ready in minutes. This is my version of Gazpacho with the exception that we really enjoy it when it is steaming hot. However it is very tasty served chilled, especially during the summer.

      This sounds lovely. We are such fans of tomato soup. When I was a kid, mom would make it with grilled cheese sandwiches and pickles. Now, I make it with wheat quesadillas with a bit of green chile on them! I always wondered how to make it w/o all the salt that the canned soup has in it. Plus the canned soup is a bit flat..... Thanks and voted up!

      I was just saying to my husband yesterday that we should make a big batch of tomato soup. How lucky I am to have found your recipe today. I've never made tomato soup with a V-8 base. Sounds good!
