Used FRESH tomatoes slightly chop and boiled. Did NOT peel potatoes; did not puree - chunky and fresh soup healthier we believe, than using canned goods. Good recipe for cold winter nights.

This is an excellent recipe! Only difference in mine is - no carrots, and I almost never peel potatoes. Matter of fact, I rarely peel ANY vegetables, unless there's a really thick rind/peel - waste too many nutrients when peeling.. Thanks for this delicious recipe - packed with good stuff!

The carrot was accidentally omitted from the ingredient list, so I added one large carrot and scrubbed, but didn’t peel, the potatoes. This soup has a robust, intense tomato flavor, the potatoes add wonderful texture, and this is most certainly company worthy Very, very good!
