Tomato Ginger Soup

Recipe by ChefDebs

My Dh had a horrible head cold and couldnt taste anything, and i had tons of tomatoes from the garden, he pronounced this soup tasty and soothing, the cayenne pepper gives it a kick. To serve for company drizzle a little heavy cream over the top and chopped chives.The parmesan is optional, try the soup first to decide if you want it , because it does change the flavour quite a bit.

I found this surfing the web for a recipe to use ginger , garlic and tomatoes in a soup and voila!! This came out great. I tried a version not pureed and added potatoes for a simple stone soup.
