What We Eat: Wholesome Tomato Soup

Usually, when I go for tomato soup, I am feeling quite lazy. Resulting from my meal coming from a can or box. I never considered making tomato soup another way, until our wellness team passed us this recipe. The benefits? A much fresher, tastier soup that doesn’t contain an excessive amount of sodium.
