I've been over purchasing yellow and red cherry tomatoes from the farmer's market. I decided to make a healthy tomato soup to get my teens to eat more vegetables. —thyme

Just made this - looking for a simple tomato soup and this was it. I use recipes as guidelines and usually change things according to what I have on hand. I used sage instead of basil and added plain greek yogurt instead of cream. Came out great and super easy. Thanks for posting!
