Rated 4 out of 5 by LFCR from Very good tomato soup I loved this soup - it was flavorful, very smooth, and creamy. However, I made the following alternations to the original recipe: • Omitted the Oregano (based on other reviews) • Increased the Vegetable bouillon cube to 1 whole (vs ½ cube) • Increased Onion to ¼ of a whole medium onion (could probably go up to ½) • Added 1T white granulated sugar • Substituted Half and Half for the whole milk Otherwise, I followed the recipe to the letter. Next time I make this soup, I will probably substitute thyme spice in place of fresh thyme. The fresh thyme was too much work. Also, this really makes 4 serving not 5.

Rated 3 out of 5 by goob from with modifications it's great Double or triple the onion and garlic and sautee for just a minute or two with 1 T evoo, the carrot, and thyme before you puree (omit oregano as others suggest). I also used chicken stock instead of water and omitted the fresh tomatoes and the bouillon (didnt have any), doubled the tomato paste, and added s&p to taste. I know that's a lot of modification but the soup was delicious. I think the problem with Vitamix recipes is the easiness/nutrition benefit of not cooking ingredients also avoids releasing the flavors of those ingredients. the quick sautee makes a world of difference

Rated 5 out of 5 by ereader from Cashews (Instead of Milk) Followed the recipe. I did add salt & pepper. Some recipes just don't state it, they assume S&P for these types of recipes. I replaced the milk/cream with a handful (1/4 to 1/3 cup) of cashews. The only reason I keep cashews (stored in the refrigerator/freezer) is for my blender based soups.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tigerlily from needs tweaking The fresh oregano makes this soup taste too much like the tomato plant and leaves. I will make this again, but will leave out the oregano and use basil instead. It also needs some salt, too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by jackiejack from Nice fresh taste after adding salt The soup has a very nice freshness to it however the oregano is too bitter and raw tasting and I will omit it in the future. This did taste quite flat until I added about 1/2 tsp salt. which boosted the flavour a great deal. My tomatoes were not very sweet so I added 1/2 tsp sugar which helped balance the flavour but I doubt the sugar would be necessary when tomatoes are in season.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Katboom from Tomato Soup I made the recipe today with grilled cheese. I thought soup was flat and unbalanced. It needs salt and I might try subsituting chicken broth instead of water. I agree with earlier reviews, the fresh oregano was good, but dominating, Next batch, I will use half the oregano and a whole chicken cube.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LauraH from Nice texture I really enjoyed the this recipe! So fast and easy. I made a couple changes though. I used one 28 oz. can of tomatoes and did not put in the fresh Romas. I also used dried herbs instead and added salt and pepper to taste.
