Homemade Tomato Soup

Homemade tomato soup is so delicious and is super quick to do. You can use store bought canned tomatoes or fresh ones, whatever you have at home. Serve with some fresh bread and you have a meal. This stores amazingly well either in the fridge or put in ziplock bags to freeze and use later. This serves as a great marinara sauce too if you don’t use the cream. Instead of the cream throw in a bunch of fresh basil and you have a batch of freshly made marinara. For a robust smoky flavor use fire roasted tomatoes @sarchakra
