It’s getting colder, the days are getting shorter and we’ve been feeling a little under the weather lately. When we’re feeling a bit under the weather, there’s nothing like a warm bowl of soup to make it all better, and for us tomato soup is the ultimate comfort food. To make this soup, we used local Roma Tomatoes, as well as the last of the Cherry Tomatoes we had growing in the backyard. We love this soup for it’s brilliant red colour and the delicious tomato-e-y taste.  That, and the fact that this soup goes perfectly with grilled cheese!
