Hearty tomato soup

(Serves 4 hungry people or 6 not so hungry)

I am currently on a journey of winter soups, the cornerstone of real winter cuisine. The most common and popular soup is the age old classic; tomato soup!

This recipe creates a wonderful creamy and flavourful soup without any actual dairy. It is also an incredibly easy soup to make and will last about a week covered in the fridge.
