Good basic soup. I used dried thyme instead of fresh and it turned out fine. I estimated measurements, but probably added more salt and pepper per my preference. I also added some chicken broth before blending - it seemed like something was missing. The tomato mixture was a fun addition, although we liked the soup better without it. Will make again, minus the tomatoes.
This soup was so easy. It was good as indicated, but I also added some chicken bouillon to give it a more substantial base. Yum! I think next time I'll experiment by adding some potatoes and substituting dill for the basil, just for variety.
