Spiced Indian Tomato Soup


We have just enjoyed a lovely relaxing weekend down the coast in Perranporth staying in a rather luxurious caravan! Perranporth has a beautifully stunning beach which I can't believe I have haven't visited before considering I have lived in Cornwall all of my life. The kids (and hubby and I) had so much fun swimming, walking and playing on the almost deserted beach. It was also nice to be away from computers/laptops and phones....something I need to do more often!

I whipped up a batch of this spicy, warming indian inspired soup to keep us all toasty during the chilly, breezy evenings....and it did the trick! You could always add some chopped coriander and a dollop of creme fraiche on top if you wished.

  1. Oooh now this is right up my street - Bookmarked!!

  2. Yes, the wind has turned a bit nippy, a nice bowl or mug of soup will be required! Hope you have a good time, I have very good memories of St Ives.

  3. Have fun Beth, I feel the same about roughing it. Camping is a big "no way!". This soup will be just the thing.

  4. I'm totally bookmarking this one!
