I have had this recipe in my box for years. I made a note to use milk instead of water to make it more of a tomato bisque.

I used basil instead of time and cut the butter in half and added a splash of olive oil. It was very good.

I like my tomato soup creamy, so after taking out the bay leaf I poured it in the blender and it came out very creamy.
