Veloute de tomates /  Creamy Tomato Soup

 

Ever since I joined the Blogging Marathon, I keep thinking about trying and posting the amazing recipes from the blogs of my fellow marathoners. But what stops me every time is imagining their face when they see the photos on my blog and go ‘Nahiiiiii’ like a Hindi movie heroine. But this time I decided to take the huge leap of faith and have a go at it. The mega BM posts on French cuisine in Priya’s blog were too tempting and I simply had to do it. Coincidently I picked European cuisine for this month’s BM and I decided to use up at least some of the bookmarks from her blog. 

The first one is a simple tomato soup which went up several notches thanks to the butter and cream. A must try. So here goes –
