One of my favorite comfort foods is grilled cheese and tomato soup. Especially on a cool fall or winter night. When I looked at the forecast a week or so ago and noticed cooler temperatures, I made sure to add this dinner to my menu. I'm still on a crock pot kick, so I searched to see if there was a soup recipe I could make in the crock pot. I decided on this one because of the amount of veggies in it and the reviews. It isn't a smooth, creamy soup due to the vegetables but it was still good. Hubs gave it a 7 out of 10 and that's pretty good because he's not a soup fan. I give it a 6 because I REALLY love creamy tomato soup. Again, a great tomato soup but if you're looking for creamy with no chunks, this is not for you. Enjoy!
