    love tomato soup quick and easy

    Try these few quick easy improvements to make this recipe go from good to great:
    -Add some red pepper flakes, a dash of brown sugar, and 2-3 cloves fresh minced garlic to the browning butter to add some great depth in flavor. The heat will help the garlic flavor bloom.
    -I feel the recipe should use some cream, more so than half-and-half. Makes it even more creamy.

    Hi everyone. Can I use a regular jar instead of the wild side jar? If not let me know when it’s on sale.

    Not a lot of flavor but a really good base to build something amazing on! I made one batch as is then mixed it with my second batch which had half the water, some garlic, red pepper flakes, and extra seasoning. When the two batches were mixed it was an awesome soup!

    I don’t think the jar makes a difference.
