I have been thinking of making Roasted tomato soup for quite some time. Rajasthan known for its scorching heat in summers could be really cold in winters. Though winters are a little late this year when it comes soup is a must in our house in evenings.

I generally make mix vegetable soup or plain tomato soup but my elder son does not drink that at all. So I tried this soup for him. The smell of tomatoes roasting is Awesome. The whole house smelled so nice. I think this prompted him to try this soup. Addition of croutons to the soup also helped a lot. :-)

There is a very mild flavor of onion and garlic which really adds up to its taste. Croutons have been baked in oven and we can use whole-wheat bread also for them instead of white bread to make them healthier.
