                                                  I always loved soups. But never ever tried making them, until a year back. One day I was chit chatting with one of my good friends. During our talks I got to know that she makes wide variety of soups. I could not stop myself and asked recipe for soup. She gave me Tomato soup recipe. The same day I prepared, my husband loved it. This time I prepared with very little modifications.

1.I prepared this soup using the tinned tomatoes. Can also be made using the fresh ones.
2.Instead of olive oil , u can even use butter.
3.Caution: Before transferring the tomatoes to the blender make sure that the tomatoes are at room temp.Hot stuff create steam  which will blow the top off the blender.
4.Make sure you have removed the bay leaf, cloves, cinnamon before adding the tomatoes to the blender.
