    Vegetarian/vegan if you use water instead of chicken stock.

    I made the soup one day ahead using half chicken broth, half water. The food mill wasn't too difficult for once and gave it a nice texture. The soup was quite good hot or cold. Either way, it's probably best with the recommended dollop of creme fraiche to round out the flavor (it doesn't need the extra basil).

    I didn't exactly make this soup. This was the first time I made a homemade tomato soup and I was afraid using so much basil would overpower the soup. I just served the soup with basil chiffonade on the finished soup but otherwise followed the recipe to a T. WOW. This was soooo good. Next time I will trust the recipe and add the basil as written. Until then, I am happily enjoying my Roasted-tomato soup.

    Pg. 84. Another winner from Ina Garten. Loved this soup! The basil flavor really shines through. I was concerned about using canned tomatoes in addition to the fresh for fear that the soup would not seem as fresh, but I really don't think it had any effect on that. I'll be making this again very soon!

    This is a delicious soup. We make this with fresh tomatoes and basil from our garden. We substitute fresh tomatoes for the canned.
