Easy Peasy Tomato Soup

This will probably be the easiest tomato soup you'll ever make. Takes no time at all and even your little ones could make this - with adult supervision of course (fire and knives, need I say more).

If there is one thing I know everyone will have is a  tin of tomatoes in the back of the cupboard (for a rainy day), I didn't use the tinned stuff, but there is nothing wrong with using it, in fact, it's probably the more convenient option for most people.

However, if you are a keen gardener, you'll have the dreaded glott of tomatoes amongst other produce come harvest. And this soup is perfect for using up some of those extra fresh toms before they go off. One more thing, this soup is also great served cold...oh, and it's VEGAN happy days!

So, let's cook!!
