This is my favorite way to eat tomato soup. I discovered the canned fire-roasted tomatoes a few years ago, and instantly fell in love with them. They make the best soups and sauces.

    I love tomato soup and am currently eating a lot of soup at the moment since hearing on the BBC that soup at lunch time curbs hunger. This recipe looks much better than the tins I am having!
