"I love tomato soup, and have been looking for a great one to make myself. This particular soup is so creamy and delicious, and since it is one of my favorite comfort foods, I plan to make it often. It is especially good with a grilled cheese sammie! Another great recipe from Menumusing."

Oh my gosh is this awesome tomato soup! The spice mix is perfect with the tomato base of the soup. Had everything but the white pepper so used black but usually have all the ingredients on hand needed for the apice mix. I used two cans of petite diced tomatoes and the immersion blender to puree the soup. Served this with ImPat's http://www.recipezazz.com/recipe/cheese-ham-toasties-16532 and enjoyed a great weekend lunch. This will be our go to recipe for tomato soup, no more canned! Made and reviewed for the Billboard Recipe Tag Game.
