This is a great recipe, especially for the kids. I added garlic and an italian blend of basil, oregano, and rosemary. This is wonderful, especially on a cold night! Also great with grilled cheese or a nice loaf of french bread! Thanks!

ok well i altered this recipe a little bit and it was AMAZING. but if i hadnt altered it it would have been blan. SO i recomend that u add salt, pepper, basil, parsley and oregano to the sauted tomatoes and onion. and i used canned tomatoes so i didnt need to add water becasue the canned tomatoes had so much tomatoe juice. good luck!!

absolutely amazing, very creamy and excellent tomatoey taste, adding cheese or "cheese" to it makes an excellent addition as i found out

You'd never believe this was vegetarian if you didn't see it being made. So tasty! Personally, I like to add some diced garlic (about 1 or 2 cloves) to the sauteing onions and tomato, and chopped basil to the soup when I pour in the tofu mixture (rather than just as a garnish). I'm also slightly lazy, so I substitute an equivalent amount of no-salt-added canned diced tomatoes, and use the reserved juice from the cans in place of the water. Keep in mind - this will thicken upon standing, so if you're making extra to put in the fridge, you may need to add a bit of tomato juice or water when you reheat it.

I doubled the tomatoes and onion, cooked in garlic olive oil. I added 16 oz of soft tofu and a can of Progresso cream of tomato soup and mixed it all with an emulsion blender. The texture was weird so I put it in batches through a sieve. Then it was good! Thanks for the recipe.

Wonderful! The only thing I did differently was add some minced garlic with the tomatoes and onion.
