I made my tomato soup this morning. I checked the recipe offered by Steamy Kitchen posted above, and mine is similar in that I roast the tomatoes, onions, fresh garlic, red bell peppers, red jalapeño, then throw it in the blender. I add salt, pepper, smoked paprika, a little half-sharp paprika and that is it. Pure and delicious tomato soup. The Amish Paste tomatoes and the addition of a variety of the cherry types made for a thicker soup. I added some home made chicken broth, no cream or anything else. It is very tasty, and the fresh tomato flavor shines.
