With the onset of cold weather, my heart (and tummy) is craving for something warm and soothing. I cannot think of a more perfect meal than a comforting, big bowl of hot soup. Soup is the best thing! They make the perfect meal for the cool days of fall. Soup warms the body and the spirit.



This cream of tomato soup is a rich, smooth, creamy, mildly seasoned soup. It is a thick soup of vine-ripened tomatoes and generous dose of cream. A smooth blend of cream combined with tomatoes, vegetable stock, herbs and finely chopped onion create a creamy tomato soup. This simple classic is warm, soothing and luscious!

A soup can be a great addition to the fall and winter dining table. Easy to prepare and delicious to taste, tomato soup is a preferred choice for all taste buds. Trust me; a bowl of soup can be your best friend this season!

I just made this last night and it was very good!! The only thing that I found when I made it was that there was too much onion. My soup also turned out a very light orange in color but I think it was because of the types of tomato I used. Even though the soup was very oniony it was still very delicious and not a drop was left over! Thanks for the recipe :)

Hello Marisa,
Thanks for trying out the soup. I am glad you liked it.

Where you able to puree the soup in a blender? Pureeing the soup gives it a nice texture and you will not feel it oniony. If you still feel you can reduce the amount of onions next time.
The color of the soup varies with the tomatoes.If you like, you can add some red coloring to give it a nice bright color. Hope this helps.
