The only changes I made:- Didn't bother straining everything through a fine mesh sieve because I am lazy and I don't have one.
- Used about a teaspoon of dried thyme instead of fresh because I have no other use for fresh thyme.
- Didn't bother with the fresh parsley garnish because of laziness.
One of the best tomato soups I have made so far but very time consuming.
I would be stoked if he was my cook though... I don't understand why Oprah gave up the vegan thing after her whole "vegan cleanse" and her ranting and raving about how fantastic she felt. But whatever. That's life.
