Maybe it's not fair for me to rate it since I submitted it - but it's awesome. Since I submitted it - I've tried a few variations and I really like it topped with French fried onions. Try it - you'll see - it's delicious ;-)

I've bought a few packet mixes of Chinese Tomato Soup in the past, and really liked it. Apart from leaving out the celery, I made this as written, and, sadly, didn't like it all. The flavors just didn't work well for me. The apple sauce made it really sludgy, and I wish I'd omitted the brown sugar because it turned out SO sweet. I even made fresh prawn crackers to go with it (and the oil smell totally stank out my house). Sorry for the low rating.


We did not like this. We made it to use up ingredients around the house, and we did not enjoy the flavor combinations. Our guest said it was OK, but I don't if it was honesty or if she was being polite.
