Tomato Basil Soup

So its the first day since I got back to Blogging and as promised… Here is my first recipe. This is a fairly simple soup with minimal chopping but is super super nutritious and healthy! Add to it the fact that you can make it in 20 minutes it is a treat! 

It tastes perfectly as it is with just a sprinkle of pepper on top, but if you are feeling indulgent, the. Fry up some bread croutons and serve with the soup! Or maybe some breadsticks or a slice of toasted garlic bread… Serve as you please!
