I'm picky about soup, but I really like this one. I did have to make some modifications. I used 2-15oz cans fire roasted tomatoes and I broiled the veggies instead of grilling them. I had fresh herbs from my garden so I used those. I also used 5 small garlic cloves which I roasted, wrapped in foil, along with the veggies. It came out terrific! I prefer it hot, but it's good chilled too. Next time I'll try it with the grilled veggies!
