Tomato Soup for Nipper 3.0

Roseanne’s Tomato Soup

It’s really not a soup day but I made this at the beginning of the week and reheated a portion for lunch today with Nipper 3.0. I made up this soup for her after she came home raving about the delicious tomato 🍅 soup she had in her friend’s house. I tried a few different recipes and none passed muster with her. She suggested I ask her friend’s mum. “Oh it’s from a carton.”
Ah okay.
Well here’s the one that finally got the seal of approval. This tomato soup reheats really well so make a double or triple batch and stick it in single servings in the freezer for these busy school days and long working days especially as the weather, eh, turns cool.
