Tomato & Rosemary Soup

The weather here right now is perfect for a hot bowl of Tomato Soup & if it is spiked with some fresh Rosemary, can it get better than that??
It was very cold & gloomy this afternoon & it was a perfect excuse to dig into some piping hot soup .. I ate mine with some toasted Baguette and Aaah Bliss !!

What I loved was the addition of Rosemary. It adds an interesting twist but it isn't very overpowering. Next time, try adding Rosemary to any of your soups .. You will love it

Looks delicious, gorgeous meal with that crusty bread slice.
Have you tried replacing the cream with cashew butter? I wonder if that would taste good too.
Cheers,
