This fresh tomato soup recipe is a great light summer soup. Serve it warm or cool.
Once a year for a short time during tomato harvest time, tomatoes that are, 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.
Ready to serve!
Since, we bake bread ourselves; we like adding herbs like rosemary and/or sage and some diced olives (preferably black ones) to the dough and serve it fresh out of the oven with this homemade tomato soup.

Should you be a fan of a more even consistency in the tomato soup, you can either be more thorough with the hand blender or strain the soup before adding the cream and re-heat before serving.
