Tomato Soup

I've been looking for a very good and delicious Tomato Soup Recipe. Anyone got any really good recipes they'd like the share?

Thanks!

Tomato Soup

2 Tb Olive oil
¼ Lb Pancetta – diced
1 Carrot - diced
1 Onion - diced
1 Celery - diced
2 Garlic - minced
2 Tb Flour
4 C Chicken broth
16 Oz Tomato
½ Tb Thyme
½ Tb Rosemary
½ Tb Cumin
1 tsp Chili Powder
TT Salt & Pepper

Sauté the pancetta in the oil until the fat is rendered and the lean is browned.

Sauté the vegetables in the fat over medium high heat until they begin to brown.

Stir in the flour and cook for two - three minutes.

Add the broth and deglaze the pan.

Add the tomato, herbs and spices.

Cook for 30 - 45 minutes.

Use a blender or hand blender to puree the soup.

Strain to remove the rosemary.

That sounds really good. I would add a little half and half at the end, just because I love a creamy tomato soup.

Mine is really easy. Pop the top of the Campbell's can. Dump it in the saucepan, and add a can of milk. Heat.

I had a friend that worked in a small cafe and when he was late for work this was the soup of the day.

One large can of tomato juice, 1 16 ounce can of chicken broth, 1 cup of rice, salt, pepper and onion powder to taste. Combine ingredients and cook 10-15 minutes until rice is tender. Serve with a small pat of butter in the bottom of each bowl.

Now I see a similar recipe from Nigella Lawson, I wonder if she was late for work the day she came up with it!

Go ahead laugh but mine is similar.... Campbells tomato soup made with water. At the end, add a couple of Tablespoons of half and half, a dollop of Pesto and some cracked black pepper. Serve it up with a grilled cheese sandwich - perfection.

Have you really Dawg??
I have a very old and comical memory of V8 tomato soup I'll share with you. I was a nineteen old bride when my equally young groom was sick in bed with who remembers what now. I dutifully asked him what I could fix him to eat and he whined "tomato soup like my mother makes". I said I only knew about Campbell's but he said his mom made it with V8 juice. That didn't sound right to me, but oh well. I heated up a can of V8 and equal part milk. It was the worse thing I ever tasted but he ate it. I later found out his mother never did that but he thought it sounded good and figured he better not say anything. We both laughed about that for the next 42 years. The up side is he never again requested anything "like my mother used to make".
Still miss that guy.

Andy, I cut and pasted.......that recipe sounds really wonderful.
