Recipe: Creamy Tomato Soup

Hello busy bees!! Now today let me share with you my childhood story, whenever I make tomato soup, it takes me to that memory lane instantly. I was introduced with tomato soup long long back ago…on a special occasion….when I was travelling with my father….it was an amazing evening….I was holding the soup with my utmost excitement (with a

question on my mind- what is this -tomatoes??)…Okay I am cutting the cord now πŸ™‚ It was on the train, we were travelling to Mumbai and for the very first time I had it there, the very special train-tomato-soup. If you traveled on train then I am sure you experienced the taste and surprisingly they able to retain the taste after many years.

Such a memory… πŸ™‚ No reviews on that very special train-tomato-soup but here I am going to share a basic, simple yet so flavorful tomato soup recipe. I am sure you have all these ingredients at home right now. Β Winter always call for soups and if it is a classic tomato soup then you have to try. Very easy and quick to prepare. You can make this soup in bulk and freeze it

to have it later. Of course crouton compliments with this soup so well that you do not want to miss it. For No-oven homemade Croutons recipe check out my next post.
