Tomato Soup | Tomato Recipes

Tomato soup is my favorite soup especially
in winter season, it’s really rich, thick and creamy texture soup which easy to
prepare with few ingredients. Tomato Soup is a creamy orangy soup made with
tomatoes as main ingredients but for more flavorful and healthy cup, you can
add carrots or beetroots. You have to garnish with cream and served with bread
sticks. For thick consistency, you can add cornflour but personally I do not
prefer to add cornflour in soup.  
Tomatoes are one of the low-calorie
vegetables containing just 18 calories per 100 g. They are also very low in any
fat contents and have zero cholesterol levels. Nonetheless, they are excellent
sources of antioxidants, dietary fiber, minerals, and vitamins. Because of
their all-round qualities, dieticians and nutritionists often recommend them to
be included in cholesterol controlling and weight reduction programs.
