Fire Roasted Tomato Cream Soup

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!
