  1. Place the red bell pepper and yellow bell pepper in a large pot with 1/4 teaspoon butter, and cook, stirring constantly, until peppers are slightly charred. Mix in tomatoes, onion, garlic, and chicken broth. Season with salt, sugar, cloves, oregano, and basil. Bring to a boil, and cook 20 minutes, until tomatoes are soft.
  2. Mix the milk and cornstarch in a small saucepan, and stir until smooth. Place saucepan over medium heat, and stir in remaining 1/2 teaspoon butter. Continue to cook and stir until thickened. Mix into the pot with vegetables.
  3. Strain about 1/2 the vegetables from the soup and transfer to a blender. Blend until smooth, and return to the pot. Bring soup to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and let sit about 5 minutes before serving.

I LOVE this recipe. I am a huge fan of tomato soup, but I don't like store-bought because of all the sodium. When our garden started producing more tomatoes than we could eat, I decided to cook ...

My husband is not a big tomato fan, never cared much for tomato soup, but this one is so good, he had two bowls and wants me to make it again. A definite keeper!

I followed the recipe loosely. Very loosely. “Eight tomatoes” was too vague for me. Eight large tomatoes? Eight medium or eight small tomatoes? When I brought in a big bowl of tomatoes from...

I've used this recipe several times, doubling and tripling the recipe so I can not only have dinner, but freeze some for the future. Wonderful use for all those extra garden tomatoes. Family l...

Wonderful recipe! Gave me something to do with all the tomatoes in our back yard! I only made two changes--I added 1 1/2 c grilled corn (shaved off the cobb), and I used only one can of chicke...

I think this recipe is simply delicious! I made it once last winter for a group of 30 people and everyone loved it! I misplaced it since then, and am very glad to have found it once again!

I didn't know how good tomato soup could be! I cut off the tops of the tomatoes and scooped out the pulp instead of peeling, and that was easy.

I made it vegetarian by omitting the chicken broth. Added a bay leaf ,and whole cloves 2 (removed before blending) . I used tomato paste 3 spoons along with 1/2 zuchini & corn . Turned out deli...
