Tomato soup

                               There was one point in my life where I believed only tomato soup existed.This is the first soup I ever tasted in my life as a kid.Amma used to prepare this yummilicious soup for the family and I would garnish loads of bread croutons and relish it heartily.Mamama too used to prepare this soup often.As I grew up I was exposed to other soups like sweet corn soup and many more.But Tomato soup was always my all time favourite soup. I prepare different versions of the tomato soup everytime.This version is one of the easiest one and I prepare this often when there is huge stock of tomatoes..This soup is good for health freaks too and is a great filling to the tummy.Please check my tomato basil soup here.
