carrot tomato soup

Its a smooth textured soup like tomato soup and has a similar consistency. Excellent for all seasons and for everybody- adults and kids alike.

This is my mil’s soup recipe which is favored by all of us. Instead of butter, I have used olive oil in soup. I have kept the soup ingredients such that it can be made by everybody, hence not added one Indian ingredient – asafoetida aka hing. However, if you have asafoetida, you can add it to the soup.

The recipe below mentions the soup, the way my mil makes it. I just made the soup minus butter, asafoetida, spinach and french beans. So these ingredients are optional and if you want you can add them. I have also shared 4 more tomato soup varieties:

Adding black pepper is my own variation to this soup. If making for kids, then skip adding black pepper. You can also add some sugar to make the soup slightly sweet.
