Haha.. Hi MOM!

This recipe looks good, but there is no cream.
Tomato Ginger Soup - Aroma Cucina

If you are going to make a "cream of" soup, make sure to use real cream with fat. If you use milk it will likely curdle from the acidity in the tomatoes.

This recipe might be better geared towards you're looking for. It seems to have tropical and rustic in one. Although I'd use fresh tomatoes instead of canned.
