Made this last night from fresh tomatoes and basil from my garden. I choose this recipe because all it needed was tomatoes for the base. I didnt want to have to go buy tomato juice or tomato sauce when my table was covered in fresh tomatoes! It was a great way to use up the surplus. I used roma tomatoes and got most of the seeds out when cut them (i just halved them because they were small). Seeds came out easily with a swipe of my finger. Followed recipe almost exactly, except i made the broth with bullion because that is what i had at home. Turned out great. After looking at the other reviews, i tried straining some at the end, and tried it without straining. I preffered the soup not strained, it had more body to it this way and I wasnt wasting all that tomato goodness. Since I got most of the seeds out when cutting the tomatoes, there were very few in the final product without straining. Had this soup with BLT's, yummy! In my second helping i crumbled an extra slice of bacon and threw a bit of shredded cheese on top- very tasty!
