"This creamy tomato soup is delicious and has a twist - the addition of strong, black coffee. This is the perfect summer dish for using freshly picked tomatoes from the garden. Remember - the better the quality of the tomatoes, the better the taste of the soup."

This is SO, so good and amazingly, quite easy and idiot-proof. Just heaven. I love that it calls for fresh produce. Our local farmers markets really have the best produce which really takes your typical tomato soup over the top. I used organic tomato sauce and FF half-n-half. Wonderful. This is low in calories and high vitamins so I didn't feel guilty going back for a little more. This one's a keeper. NOTE: Next time, I'd like to add some fresh basil to really drive me crazy.
`I had very high expectations or this soup. i was very disppointed. While the consistency was great it had very little taste. I followed the recipe as written but added additinal garlic. I will nto make this again.
Ok. For the sake of novelty I had to try this soup. Coffee? In tomato soup?? Really??? Really. It works. The coffee adds a ... beefiness. Plus this fresh tomato soup couldn't be any easier ~ no blanching and peeling tomatoes!! Just buzz with the immersion blender then add half-n-half to desired creaminess. I finished the soup with fresh basil and thyme, but it really is good without. .... coffee... huh... who woulda thunk.... thanks lagirl.
Of course I have to give this recipe five stars - it's my own! Funny enough, I had forgotten about it until I did a tomato soup search and it popped up as an option! Remember - use homegrown or farmer's market fresh tomatoes for the best taste. Second choice is homegrown tomatoes that you canned back in the summertime. Do not use hard, yucky grocery store winter tomatoes and expect this to turn out well.
This is a keeper! There were no left overs!
Had to try this and am glad I did. This soup is excellent!
This is no typical tomato soup and explodes with flavour with I tried it the first time. My husband suggested adding small meatballs - a great addition for meat-lovers :)
Delicious! I didn't have carrots, so I made it without....it is super easy and so so good. The coffee adds a depth of flavor and smokey delight. I added basil and extra salt to mine. Try it!
