Fresh Tomato Soup Recipe

This fresh tomato soup recipe can be enjoyed warm on a cold winter's day, or chilled on a hot summer's day. 

Once a year for a short time during tomato harvest time, tomatoes that are, really really cheap and really ripe can be found. Once before we were able to get 1kg of tomatoes for only 90 cents that otherwise would cost 7-8 dollars.

The only way I can describe the taste of this soup is that it tastes real there is no hiding the fact that this soup is made out of tomatoes. Tomatoes are high in vitamin C they are also a good source of many other nutrients. Tomatoes have recently been known for their lycopene content which is said to be disease preventing. 

Served with buttered bread as many soups seem to be this soup is both filling and nutritious.
