After buying a 5# bag of tomatoes at the farmer's market, I knew I was going to be making some soup (2.5 times this recipe). This recipe is a Vvery good starting point. I didn't exactly prefer the clove flavor, but it is definately a fun touch. I don't have a food mill, so I peeled, seeded the tomatoes before putting them in with onion over heat. I also added half a bulb of garlic. I didn't have butter, so I used veggie oil. Next time, I will definately go buy the butter. I puree'd the toms, onion, garlic in the blender and did not push through a sieve. I prefer a slight chunkiness to my soup. Everyone has been doctoring the soup in their own ways... I like a bit of chili powder, cumin, and tabasco, Sister likes a spoon of pesto, DH likes cheese... all taste great. Like another reviewer mentioned... I wish there was a 4.5 star rating. With such a HUGE batch of soup, I am freezing at least half of it. It should be fine since I have made tomato sauces that actually turn out a bit better once they're frozen.
