Tomato Soup


Warm, fresh Tomato Soup. There’s nothing more comforting than spoonfuls of warm tomato soup running down your throat on a cold snowy day. And don’t forget the crackers.

You can use roma tomatoes, plum tomatoes or beefsteak tomatoes for this recipe. If you don’t have any fresh tomatoes then canned will work just fine. In order to get a much better taste from this recipe try to use fresh ripe tomatoes whenever possible.

Some Tomato Soup recipes call for broth and a variety of other vegetables like carrots or celery. This recipe is simple in ingredients and just as tasty. Enjoy!
