Cooks Illustrated, page 18: Creamless Creamy Tomato Soup - chives, onion, garlic, red pepper flakes, tomatoes...and, a surprising NON-dairy ingredient to take away the tartness and make the soup smooth and creamy. Irresistible!
So I made the recipe last night and I have to say it's a great tomato soup. I've been a fan of tomato soup since I was a kid growing up in Denver...mom always made that for us along with toasted cheese sandwiches as a way to warm up after a morning of playing in the snow.
Adult life has been spent trying to find a recipe that recreates that experience.
The "no dairy" idea on this one is a twist I found interesting, and I was skeptical. But it really works. Creamless Tomato Soup is one of the many fool-proof recipes found in Cooks Illustrated, a thank-you gift VPR is offering for a sustaining membership during this pledge drive.
With springtime coming, the good news is you don't even need snow to enjoy it!
