  • Stir in canned tomatoes (with juice). Add broth; bring to a lively simmer over high heat. Reduce heat to maintain a lively simmer and cook for 10 minutes.

  • Puree the soup in the pot using an immersion blender or in batches in a blender. (Use caution when pureeing hot liquids.) Stir in half-and-half (if using), salt and pepper.

Tips

To make ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 4 days or freeze for up to 3 months.

Ingredient Note: Chicken-flavored broth, a vegetarian broth despite its name, is preferable to vegetable broth in some recipes for its hearty, rich flavor. Sometimes called “no-chicken” broth, it can be found with the soups in the natural-foods section of most supermarkets.

you will never go back to Campbells wonderfully flavorful zesty tomato soup. I served it plain with freshly grated parmesan cheese and croutes (toasted bread rubbed with garlic and brushed with olive oil). Perfect. On second day I stirred in a pinch of cayenne pepper for a kick. You could turn this into many different soups-add macaroni beans and zucchini for a garbanzo style soup etc. You could have a lot of fun with it. Enjoy! Pros: easy and full of flavor Cons: I don't have an immersion blender Read More
