Garden Fresh Tomato Soup Recipe

Nothing can top a Fresh Tomato Soup Recipe made with ingredients fresh from your garden or local fresh market. No variations on this one unless you have some other fresh herb or vegetable available not used in this recipe. Add some condiments and this is all natural goodness. Many Garden Fresh tomato recipes use chicken broth, wine, flour, butter and cream. These ingredients are fine in a slew of other tomato soup recipes. I believe the window of opportunity is brief when the whole garden is peaking at once. That's the time gardeners should enjoy the fruits of their success. A natural homemade tomato soup recipe is the perfect vehicle. This recipe should be at the top of any vegans list.
