Lite Tomato Soup

Soups are the ultimate comfort food. The one soup which my son would love to order in a restaurant is Cream of Tomato Soup.

It is the simplest of soups. Also, it is one of the first ones that I learnt and appreciated. I guess I can relate to my son’s inclination towards it.

A lighter version is also possible.
