Valentines Day Tomato Basil Soup

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by libbyahall

I make this full fat version of tomato basil soup for special occasions (ie this past Valentines Day). It is super easy to make, and the left overs feed me and my husband for lunch for the rest of the week! I found this recipe on all recipes, and the woman says that it is much better with the heavy cream and butter. It probably is some better, but I make a low fat version for our "every day tomato basil soup". You can use extra tomatoes and reserve them from the blending step so that you have some chunks of tomato in your soup.
