One of the perfect soup for Health conscious folks and good for weight loss too, though Tomato soup is easily available in markets in cans or sachets, it’s best to gorge on homemade soup. Market based soups contains lots of additional calories and are not as nutritious as the homemade. So if you want to eat healthy then its best to stick to homemade soups and yes , its quite wonderful in taste and you would have no reason now to reach out to those canned soups from supermarkets..
