I read reviews and had high hopes for this soup. I made it as as described, but sauted 2 cloves garlic and 2 shallots in 1tbsp butter first (as previous reviewers suggested). I thought it tasted like tomato juice with basil and cream. I like to control the amount of salt in recipes, and there is just too much salt in tomato juice. I made this again, but instead of tomato juice, I used 4 cups of canned tomatoes (no salt added). Because you blend it at the end, it has a thick consistency but tastes so much better (you can add more salt at the end depending on your preferences).
