This fabulous warm tomato soup recipe I have made for many years now, in different jobs and at home for dinners. It is a lovely, smooth tasting soup and clear on your palate. If you can get your hands anyhow on any kind of basil leaves, do not hesitate to add it! It is definitely worth a drive to your local supermarket or nursery to even get a basil plant for your kitchen and herb garden. In my area I would recommend to give ST Omer Nursery in Paarl a visit, the quality of their herbs are absolutely the best. I had the privilege to work at their coffee shop for a short while and it was fantastic to be able to cook and decorate and garnish with all those wonderful herbs and lettuces to choose from! Me and my husband both love food with tomato, and what a blessing I would say- these days I quite often hear that people say they don't eat tomatoes! They really miss out. Also on a healthy way they miss out. Tomatoes are both ways very nutritious. Cooked or raw. If you have a bag of tomatoes that will soon go off, it is a good idea to cook this delicious tomato soup before wasting the tomatoes. Served with brown or white bread.
