Have made this recipe many times over the last few years after finding it in the Taste of Home Heartwarming Soups cookbook. Both my husband and I love the flavor and it's a great way to use a bounty of fresh tomatoes from the garden. The only changes I've made to the recipe is to slice the carrot rather than shredding it - and I use a lot more curry powder (as much as three times what's in the recipe) because we like the flavor. Wonderful for a light lunch all by itself.
This is a wonderfully delicious soup which I have been making for years! It tastes so fresh and pairs well with grilled cheese sandwiches. Canned chopped tomatoes are good if fresh is not available.
So good! I did make a few changes, I added about a tbsp of minced garlic, another 1 tbsp of butter, I threw in some mushrooms, I also had beef broth on hand instead of vegetable or chicken. I replaced 1 cup of broth with white wine, and used 1/2 cup of sherry at the end instead of the broth. I think the wines deepened the flavor. I served with a crostini. This would be an amazing fall dish on a breezy night. Mmmm!

I really like this soup. I add cubed chicken or turkey and 1 cup shredded zucchini to the recipe.
we can't wait until the tomatos ripen in the garden since i discovered this soup several years ago
We make this recipe or one just like it, all the time. We love it. I think "tomato soup" is a bit of misnomer though, it's more of a tomato based vegetable soup in our eyes. We too like to chunk some Chicken in it and the canned chicken from costco is perfect, just one can for this recipe is great.
