"This creamy tomato soup is delicious and has a twist - the addition of strong, black coffee. This is the perfect summer dish for using freshly picked tomatoes from the garden. Remember - the better the quality of the tomatoes, the better the taste of the soup."

  1. Melt the butter in a stock pot over medium heat. Stir in the onion, carrots, celery, garlic, and parsley; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes, tomato sauce, coffee, water, sugar, salt, and pepper. Bring the soup to a boil and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. Pour the hot soup into a blender, filling the pitcher no more than halfway full. Hold down the lid of the blender with a folded kitchen towel, and carefully start the blender, using a few quick pulses to get the soup moving before leaving it on to puree. Puree in batches until smooth and pour into a clean pot. Stir in the cream and heat until warm. Do not boil.

Delicious! I didn't have carrots, so I made it is super easy and so so good. The coffee adds a depth of flavor and smokey delight. I added basil and extra salt to mine. Try it!

What a flavorful soup! Also fast and easy to make. I pureed it in our VitaMix all in one batch, no problems. We used freshly picked garden tomatoes and flat-leaf parsley from my herb garden. ...

Super easy! Even my husband, who doesn't usually like tomato soup, said it was tasty. The only things I changed were: 1) I left out the carrots, as I didn't have any on hand; and 2) I used a 1...
