Tomato & Dill Soup

This Tomato & Dill Soup recipe pairs well with grilled cheese sandwiches for a garden fresh lunch!

I absolutely love tomatoes fresh off the vine.  Juicy and so full of flavour, I could eat them like apples!  This soup is a great way to use up tomatoes and enjoy them in all their glory along with a few other vegetables and herbs that you can grow in your own garden.  This is a truly garden fresh soup plus it is Vegan friendly!

Feel free to increase the dill to 1/2 a cup for a more pronounced dill flavour, just don’t think about adding milk or cream.  This delicious soup does not need it!
