I was really looking forward to this recipe. And while it was definitely better than something out of the can, it did not meet my expectations. The hue and texture were both very nice, but I was hoping for something creamier. This just didn't hit the spot for me. It tasted more like a good marinara or pizza sauce than a tomato soup that warms you up on a cold night. I have to admit that I used canned tomatoes instead of fresh ones which probably made some difference. And I didn't have any cayenne on hand, so I used a pinch of Chili powder instead. Nevertheless, I don't think either of those things changed it so much that is caused my disappointment, and I followed the rest of recipe as written. Being that this soup takes so long to make, I doubt that I will make it again often if at all. Maybe some cream added to it would give it what I'm looking for. I may have to try it again some time with some modifications.
