Winter Tomato Soup

My mum would make us tomato soup weekly, with a twist of a pie in the middle… oh a Aussie classic! I must admit I didn’t want to eat any tomato soup for many years after over dosing on it, but my daughter has reignited the love for it. We made it super easy because its a great option when you don’t have much time at the end of the day, and my daughter loves it even for her lunch boxes.
