4.5 stars. I did change a few things i.e., fresh tomatoes vs canned, 1/2C of carrot & celery, used my own chicken stock and left out the worcestershire and hot sauce. I added a few additonal herbs (parsley/rosemary). I did saute the carrot/celery/onion in olive oil. I had approx 8 cups of cleaned/chunked up of my own grown tomatoes. After everything simmered for awhile in a large pot, I used my stick blender & went to town on it. Because I like my soup smooth, I then utilized a fine mesh strainer to get rid of excess pulp/seed/skins, etc. I used roasted garlic vs raw & instead of salt I used 1/2 tsp Mortons 'natures seasoning'. Yes, I spent more time by doing things this way but it was fantastic. I added about 1/2 C of 2% milk b4 serving for a creamier soup. Easy to adapt with fresher ingredients and I'm thinking some shredded zucchini or spinach would be good addition too! Well, get creative and make it your own. :)
