Tomato Soup with Rosemary Flowers

Untitled-3

Fresh!!

I love a good Tomato Soup this recipe is simple but tasty, using rosemary and thyme to give it a herby taste. Once again most of these ingredients are taken from my Aunts garden in Spain but you can use shop bought tomatoes, I would say try and get some organic tomatoes for extra sweet taste!
