Easy Tomato Soup Recipe


Few weeks back we went to our favourite veg restaurant, usually i dont order soup there. But this time i thought of trying their tomato soup..I ordered and enjoyed it..This made me realize that i haven't posted tomato soup recipe in my blog.

So the next day itself, i made my soup, clicked it and enjoyed it to the core. Some people add cream in their tomato soup. But i dont usually add. Soups are meant to be healthy, so i dont want to make it unhealthy with the addition of cream. But i like to add a touch of butter in my soup. Because it gives nice flavour to the soup.



Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turned out for you..
