Although soups are not often eaten in India, tomato soup bucks the trend and is very popular. This is excellent on a cold winter day.

Yummy! I'm used to Italian versions of tomato soup; with basil and oregano, so this was a really different experience. I liked the coriander and pepper flavors- they really made the tomato sing. I can't help thinking though, this would be even more amazing with a grilled cheese sandwich :D Made for ZWT8.

A nice soup. I did add freshly ground pepper to taste, not measure and it was quite spicy pepper wise. I used an unrefined extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, sweet rice flour instead of corn starch which acts as a starch to be corn free, and yogurt. Made for Veggie Swap 31 ~ February 2011.

Tuesdays in our household we have soup for dinner in the cold months. This was quick to throw together. I used pureed tomatoes and prepped the soup on the soup then kept it heated in a slow cooker on LOW for 3 hours. The cilantro was garnished on top and not stirred into the soup. Arrowroot replaced cornstarch. Reviewed for Veg Tag February.
