  1. I love tomato soup. It is one of those soups that are not just cold-weather soups you can have it slightly chilled on warm spring day! I like that very much!

  2. I only like cold soups in the hot Australian summer but it’s soon to be winter and nothing would please me more tonight than a bowl of this carrot and tomato soup. It looks thick and full of flavor.

  3. I would not want to leave out those buns – they look like the perfect accompaniment. Lovely and tasty looking soup – definitely going on my list of recipes to try!

  4. Oh, this is so perfect for this one minute warm the other minute cold weather!

  5. Great looking soup! Love the combo of carrots and tomatoes — this must be such a tasty soup! But leave out the buns? Never! ๐Ÿ˜‰
