“This recipe is from an old Taste of Home. It is a rich, beautiful tomato soup,and is always best made with homegrown romas. I have cut the butter in half from the original recipe, if you can believe it. I have also tried making this with half-and-half instead of cream, but you really can taste the difference. I have made this wusing either vegetarian broth (for my sister) and homemade chicken stock, with equal success.”
