Larry, one of my cousins has an Italian restaurant in northern Minnesota and serves a great tomato soup. Here's the recipe but, don't freak out, it's for a restaurant-sized batch. Reduce as you think necessary. You can use it as a guide, too. Enjoy!


COUSIN AMY'S HERB TOMATO CREAM CHEESE SOUP
(Makes about 4 gallons)

1 lb. butter
4 cups onions, chopped
3 lb. cream cheese, softened
4 cans condensed tomato soup
20 cups cream
4 cups water
2 (15-oz.) cans diced tomatoes, undrained
1 lb. fresh tomatoes, diced
16 tsp. fresh basil, coarsely chopped
cup fresh parsley, coarsely chopped
Salt and white pepper, to taste

In large saucepan or Dutch oven, sweat onions in butter; transfer to stockpot; add cream cheese and blend. Add remaining ingredients and blend thoroughly. Serve hot.

Wish I could help, but I've only tried it once, and the recipe I used was definitely not TNT...

Larry, why not make roasted tomato soup? I love this simple but delicious way to make tomato soup. Click on my blog, Chew On This at the bottom, then click on the link on the right "Winter, an excuse for Comfort Food." The recipe calls for roasted tomatoes and that's very easy to make. The difference is awesome!!

Since you are using fresh tomatoes I vote for the roasted tomato recipe. When it comes to tomato soup I've always been a canned tomato user...fire roasted being my favorite!

Vicky, Amy's recipe uses fresh, too. However, I think using roasted fresh ones in the recipe would be dynamite.

Thanks Katie - - I knew they were fresh - I just LOVE roasted fresh tomatoes. I guess my comment about liking fire roasted "canned" tomatoes was confusing. Sowwy!

I didn't know there was such a thing as fire-roasted canned tomatoes. Yum!
