Tomato Soup-

Even if you have picky eaters, this tomato soup will become a family favorite! Our children strongly dislike tomatoes and are not huge fans of most vegetables but they absolutely love this recipe. The soup is full of so much flavor from the tomatoes to the extra vegetables and basil. The sauteed carrots, onions, celery and garlic are blended and add a surprising texture to the soup.  The richness from the added vegetables gives it the taste of a tomato bisque soup.

After you try this from scratch recipe, you’ll never want to purchase store bought canned tomato soup again. #You’reWelcome

    I just made this for dinner !! It was such a hit 😀 and I can’t believe how fast it was to whip everything up. I also love that you add veggies and chicken broth; it makes it a healthier soup, which is much needed this time of year! 😀 thank you for sharing. Everyone really loved it!

    I served it with garlic and herb croutons.. and I also had cashew cheese on the side. We dipped pita crackers with it. Yummy ?

    I just wanted to point out that your directions say “parsley,” instead of basil!

    This one’s a keeper! Thank you! 🙂
