Easy Tomato Soup

4 basic ingredients + 15 minutes=healthy and yummy tomato soup…

I repeat, you don’t have to have over the top ingredients or recipes to make something delicious. From my experience, it’s not hard at all to whip up a tasty dish using simple ingredients and in less time. During my last grocery shopping, I had bought a huge bag of tomatoes, I’ve no idea why. Every time I opened the refrigerator I stared at the tomatoes, and somehow got distracted by other veggies. It was last weekend, finally I got motivated in emptying those tomatoes. If I want to finish all the tomatoes, there was nothing better than making soup out of it.

As always my requirements were to spend less time in my kitchen and to make a flavorful soup. For making this soup, I used very basic and simple ingredients that are always found in our kitchen. While making this soup, I was little concerned whether this soup would turn out to be blant as I didn’t even add stock to it. Trust me, when I tasted this soup it was hard for me to believe that it only had a very few ingredients. After having a few sips of this soup, my hubby raised his thumps not down but upwards. He didn’t talk much as he was busy enjoying the soup. On a lazy winter day this soup would be perfect.
