Grilled Tomato Basil soup is a super yum recipe. Most people prefer tomato soup when ordering at a hotel. It is easy simple and yum. Serves as a great appetizer. However , restaurants use a lot of corn flour. This thickens the soup. Sometimes they just add sauce to water and some corn flour. Thereby ripping the customer.
You can get that restaurant style soup at home. Whether you make the classic one or try this recipe. Grilled Tomato Basil soup takes normal one to a new height. The flavor increases and tartness just bursts into your mouth. It is kid friendly, vegan and gluten-free. Hence, an all inclusive appetizer.
Add some pizza or cheese sticks or gluten-free crackers.
There, simple stuff and you have a winning combination.
Childhood and love for tomato soup
This tomato soup brings back so many memories.
I adore my mum for making everything at home. From a sauce to a soup at home. Jam to pickles. Everything was made fresh in spite of working long hours too. Occasionally, She would add all veggies and give it a boil. It was best way to use left over veggies before you went shopping too. Fridge empty and tummy full. You could name any veggie and it would be in that soup. Pressure cooking and blending we got all veggies in our diet. My sister was a picky eater and this was the only way she would have veggies. Now she uses the same technique with her toddler. Mums always find a way. I am sure you would remember your mum when you read this post.
Motherhood means never giving up! Now as a mum myself, I know how hard it is. Shout out to all super mum and dads who give it their all!
