I used low fat evaporated milk and it made a super velvety soup.

This is a great “pantry soup”—that is, it comes together in minutes from ingredients that you can keep on hand all the time.
5 Reviews for Quick Tomato Soup
According to my husband -- "Best ever". I adjusted the recipe somewhat and made it easier and better (I think). No milk, no sugar, and I added about a Tbsp of veg. bouillon. I used very large garlic cloves. I used only fresh chopped basil leaves -- no other additional herbs. In my opinion, the pepper flakes added the special touch. Served with toasted whole grain bread. Delicious! Especially on a cold evening.
I really like this soup either by itself or with a salad. I'm always looking for something really quick on week nights since my husband and I both have day jobs. This is something we both like.
I served this on Christmas Eve for my non-Oyster Stew loving guests. They loved it and asked for seconds. I used crushed tomatoes with basil already in it. I normally have all of the other ingredients on hand so this is a great fallback recipe to have.
At first, I thought it was a quick marvel! Later, it seemed just OK.
