Soup is big in our household, whether as a starter, a quick fix when hungry, or when feeling ill. However, the one soup we’ve never been able to make as good as shop-bought is tomato soup… Until now.
The word rustic is perfect for this Homemade Tomato Soup recipe. When made exactly, it has all the hallmarks of a meal made with love.
