I made an incredible, quick and super easy soup for lunch today. Boy, was it good. Plus I have leftovers and will be enjoying them tomorrow.
I wanted to share this recipe with you all and thank Linda at Linda's Low Carb Menus and Recipes for a great recipe.
You just need a few ingredients and no more than 10 minutes of your time to create a rich, warm and soothing tomato soup. I don't have a lot of time to spare during my lunch break so this is an ideal recipe for me. And the fact that it is low carb ROCKS !
So this is just a short post to share a superb recipe!
