Tomato Basil Soup

J. White Harris


I found a note in a recipe file that said, “Try Tomato Basil Soup with a couple cans of Tomato Soup, Basil, and Buttermilk.” I like buttermilk and I like tomato soup. Starting from that I put together this recipe. It turned out very good. It was a hit at my house.
