Very similar to my own recipe except always add basil, fresh or dried, to taste. Makes all the difference in the world. I also put finely chopped onion in as I cook the tomatos.

This is PERFECT for gluten free users who cannot enjoy many store bought soups. it is easy and creamy. I especially like it when using in casseroles.

This is very similar to the tomato soup that my grandmother made. She always said that the baking soda was so the milk would not curdle. I think she only used a pinch.

Before I threw out the batch, I realized it needed sugar. I found that 3 Tbls. worked. Start at 2 Tbls. and keep adding till you find what works for you. Also, if there are seeds, you'll want to strain the soup. It tastes MUCH better with the sugar.

I did not care for this recipe at all. I found it to be very bland. I added salt, but it just didn't taste right. Sorry to say, the entire batch is getting thrown out.

I assume the baking soda is to balance the acidity of the tomatoes..

the baking soda is turning me off a bit. Why is it used?
