Beth's Easy Tomato Soup

Submitted by: CURVES_N_CURLS

Introduction

Beth doesn't share recipes. She's 'one of those' cooks! ;-) So feel privileged, 'cause here's one she kindly shared! :) (NOTE: Beth's original recipe did not have the basil or pepper, it had one less tbsp. onion, and it had an extra tbsp. of sugar. I modified the recipe for my tastes.) 2007-11-13 EDIT: I made this again, adding 4 cloves of minced garlic, and it was delish! (((NOT included in the nutritional information, but it wouldn't really affect the calories anyway!))) :) Beth doesn't share recipes.

    Delicious. Reduced the baking soda down to 1/2 tsp and didn't have basil on hand, made it and we enjoyed it. sauteed the onion in the butter prior to adding to soup. Also bought salt free crushed tomatoes -Will make this recipe again - it is so easy to make - 4/24/10

    When I made this, it ended up really buttery tasting (might be since I used ICBINB). I added extra basil and some condensed tomato soup, plus a little catsup. It came out pretty good. It really needed that garlic, but the store was out!! :( - 6/25/08

    "Buttery tasting"...? I haven't a clue why, except that you used that ICBINB stuff. Try making it as written, and then reviewing again... Honestly, I wouldn't touch ICBINB with a 10-foot pole! I'm all for the real thing when I cook. ;-)

    Made this last night and it was EXCEPTIONAL! Took some to my mother and she was very appreciative, as well. Adding some left-over vegetables such as corn or peas would be very good, too. Kudos for this one. :)

    BTW, the leftovers are also good for spaghetti or chili. :)

    Delicious! I made this last night. It was easy and came out great. The only thing I did differently was I metled the butter in the pot first and sauteed the onion for a couple of minutes in it with about a teaspon of crushed garlic (not i the recipie). Thanks for this awesome and EASY recipie! - 12/31/07

  • i just made it w/o butter and chicken broth (much less sodium) - all out :-) Put it on to simmer. Used 1/2 tsp baking soda and 1/2 the sugar as per other comments. So far so good - Thanks. - 9/30/13

  • This was super and delicious! Added some additional spice....very rich and tastey! A total keeper! I haveca far more involved recipe that is not nearly as good - 12/2/12

  • Inedible...I knew 3 tbsp way too much sugar. I should have gone with my gut instinct and used 3 tsp. Gross! - 8/26/12

  • Very nice. Didn't turn out perfectly (I should've reduced the baking soda and used a bigger pot) but the whole family enjoyed it. Great with our grilled cheese! Thanks! - 12/25/11

  • YUM. I had a recipe similar to this and lost it, this is the perfect replacement. I loved it. I added some diced cooked bacon in with it for my husband and it was great with that as well. For those curious as to what the soda is in there for, I'm pretty darn sure it's just to keep the acidity down. - 8/12/11

  • Amazing, amazing...thanks Beth! I made some real stock from the chicken I had baked earlier....and I did cut down on the butter to 2 Tblsp...that was fine....do you think that you could substitute and use olive oil and get close to the same taste! Thanks again...will share this recipe too!! - 3/5/10

  • The 3 TBSP of sugar and 4 TBSP of butter really killed my desire to make this :-\ I think I will probably use fresh Roma tomatos to avoid all the sodium. Thanks for the inspiration though. :-) - 10/19/09
