Homemade Tomato Soup is an amazing recipe that produces a welcoming warming bowl of goodness. Serve as either a starter, main dish or as a soup dish. Using simple ingredient and a few herbs (Basil or Thyme are my favourites). Also don’t forget, this can be made in advance and stored in the fridge for a few days or a few months in the freezer.
