Recipe for Homemade Creamy Tomato Soup
Who doesn’t love cream of tomato soup on a chilly day? And yes, even adults crave the comfort of a delicious creamy tomato soup when their feeling a bit down.
So if you’re feeling a bit down, turn that day around, and run and get the ingredients for this delicious soup.
And … it’s simple.
Do you have memories of canned tomato soup mixed with milk and served piping hot in a big mug? Well this soup is just as delicious as the canned version is but much much healthier.
My memories are canned tomato soup made with milk instead of water and a good book on a rainy day. I started this as a young child when it would rain so hard we couldn’t go outside to play.
I would read “The Cat in The Hat” books and drink my tomato soup from a big red cup.
When you make homemade soup, you control what ingredients goes into the soup, and the one thing that really needs controlled is salt! Manufacturers put way too much salt in their foods and soups, so homemade is really the best way when it come to soups.
I like to eat a lot of soup!
Canned tomato soups also contain a lot of added sugar. This soup uses a mere teaspoon of sugar and still tastes fantastic. There really is no need to add all the salt and sugar when you make fresh soups.
It really is true that once you start making your own homemade soups you will never go back to canned. So make this soup and get yourself a good book to read!

Butter only one side of both of your bread slices.
