i was just rhapsodizing over a second mug of the creamiest, dreamiest tomato & roasted red pepper soup ever! this one is from trader joe's, but though it is organic, this soup is loaded with sodium. my thoughts immediately turned to making my own version of this delicious bisque, and lightening up on the salt. can i get some ideas from you soup makers out there? with the advent of chilly autumn mornings, i've been moved to turn to long simmering meals in a pot, and have become a total freak for soupmaking this october. i have turned into an insatiable soup freak this month, with no signs of abatement....

I don't use Campbell's soup. For quick tomato soup I start with a 28 oz can of San Marzano tomatoes, dump it into a pan and give it a quick whiz with the hand blender. Then I thin it out with some half and half, add some finely chopped fresh basil, and heat it through. Takes a total of 5 minutes to make.

And another inspiration! I have a bunch of zippies of roasted cherry toms in the freezer, and need to use up the rest of the basil. It smells really good right now!

Bucky, A little splash of vodka wouldn't hurt!

I would go with Blushing Bunny and plenty of hot buttered toast for dunking!

DH proclaimed it the best tomato soup he's ever had. Though I was a bit heavy-handed with the red pepper flakes...

I used a combo of Ina Garten's and Tyler Florence's recipes and whatever else I had.

For even quickest tomato soup, I use tomato juice. I make it non-dairy. It is one soup my no-eating-soup-of-any-kind daughter loves.

Charlie, I had a friend that worked in a local deli and when he overslept the soup of the day would be tomato rice. A can of tomato juice, rice, black pepper and a lump of butter, the customers loved it!

Another quick tomato soup is a jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce and a cup of heavy cream.

I saw an ad for them a while back, have seen them on the shelf, but have never bought them.
