Tomato soup is probably one of the most popular soups.
I do it myself quite often.
Tomato soup can be prepared in many ways. If you want a simple cream soup just with tomatoes and nothing else, cooking this kind of soup takes only a few minutes. To improve the taste of such a simple soup, you can add basil, oregano, thyme, garlic or olive oil.
If you want to make this ordinary soup a little more diverse serve it with pasta, rice, croutons. Personally, I usually add some double cream as well.

Peel the tomatoes before adding them to the soup. The easiest way to remove the skin is to put them into boiling water for about 15 seconds.
