What a wonderful idea. I made a few changes: one whole tomato (because it was a Roma), a garlic clove pureed with the onion and tomato and because I prefer Cream of Tomato soup, I stirred in 1 Tablespoon heavy cream just before serving. Excellent lunch idea for moms who don't want PB&J!

This soup was alright. very healthy and tasty (I love tomatos and vegetable juice) but can be a little too zesty without crackers or some sort of bread to go with. Will probably make again, but onlyl in place of cambell's tomato soup that I eat like twice a year.

This was great, especially since I was alone for the weekend and needed a quick dinner. I did add about 1 clove of minced garlic to the mix just to give some more flavor. Really tasty and really quick!

This recipe was inspiring and quite clever. I did modify it a bit more to my tastes, but i think that's what is so wonderful about cooking. I added half of a red bell pepper into the puree blend, added some chopped red potatoes, and gave also gave it more of an italian flavor with various spices. Since I am also a lemon nut, I went ahead and used lemon pepper as well. This is a fabulous recipe with endless possiblities.

So simple and so good that it leaves you asking yourself "Why didn't I think of that"? I turned this into tomato soup for two and kept the amount of onion at 1/4 vidalia onion. I opted to use low sodium V8 and added some garlic, fresh basil, and a splash of white wine vinegar. A great base for add-in's to suite your tastes!

Ridiculously easy, and you would never be able to tell!! I doubled the recipe and it came out to exactly 2 bowls of soup. I just put the onion, tomato and V8 in my food processor for about 30 seconds, and then heated it on the stove for about 5 minutes. Afterwards I realized I should have just dumped it into bowls and put it in the microwave for a minute or two to make it even easier and less mess. I can't get over the fact that I can make FRESH tomato soup in under 5 minutes from start to finish! You could add other ingredients to modify it such as some fresh basil, more garlic, a little mascarpone cheese would taste great too. It was much better than any canned or prepared tomato soup I have bought from the grocery store, and I loved that the consistency was thick just from all the raw vegetables in there. Great recipe!! Thanks!

This was really good. I also used 1 plum tomato. I added a little garlic also to the puree. It may have been my tomato, but I also had to add a little sugar because the soup was a little bitter. Finally, I wanted my soup a little creamier, so I added a couple of table spoons of butter to thinken the mixture. It was tasty and I will keep it in mind for the future, although it did make a lot of mess.

Absolutely delightful! So much better tasting than the canned stuff, which is loaded with sugar, starch, and salt. I disagree with those who found it flavorless or bland. This is a celebration of the simple, glorious flavor of burstingly ripe tomatoes, period. Very low in calories and naturally fat free. Heart-healthy stuff, with a nice dose of lycopene and vitamin C galore! The second time I made this, I put in a dab, about 1/2 tsp, of Minor's chicken base, which couldn't be tasted exactly, but which lent a nice depth of flavor, and salted it just right. Additionally, I like to peel and seed the tomatoes before I blend them, as I find both to be a detraction. What you taste is exactly what you get, uncomplicated and wholesome.
