Garden Tomato Soup

Garden Tomato Soup

 Made  times

"This is a vegetarian tomato soup and you can add more basil if you like. I make it a lot at the restaurant I work in, and it is a favorite of customers and staff. If you want a more intense basil flavor, try adding some fresh chopped basil to the soup just before serving. The longer you cook basil the more the flavor mellows."

Great flavour. I would add less salt though, as it was very powerful.

Must be a typo. I cannot imagine putting 2T of salt in a soup of this size. I put in 1T and it still tastes pretty salty to me. Otherwise the flavor is decent, but nothing to write home about...

Man! That was good! I changed a few things though. First I read the reviews so I knew to reduce to salt to less than a tbsp. I put 1/2 tsp. Perfect! Then I added 1 lb of ground meat. Last...

The salt has been changed from 2 tablespoons to 2 teaspoons at the submitter's request.

Wasn't overly fussy with this soup, but I have had worse. Probably won't make again though.

Instead of the canned tomatoes, I made this with a can of stewed tomatoes, a can of tomato puree and some chicken stock to keep the sodium level down. I sauteed the onions and zucchini in olive...
