This recipe is quite simple and straightforward. Some sour cream adds some creaminess, however you could use some half-and-half or heavy cream instead. Tomato_soupSince balsamic vinegar goes so well with tomatoes, we added just a touch. Make sure to blend this soup very well, it's best when it's completely smooth.

There is nothing wrong with canned tomato soup, however once you've tried to make your own, you won't go back. This tomato soup is very easy to make, yet tasty and satisfying. We used canned tomatoes, but if you happen to have a lot of fresh tomatoes on hand, you could roast them first, and then add them to the soup.
