Tomato Dill Soup – A taste of summer to warm up your winter!
I had a difficult time making up my mind which food to post this week. It has been so busy since mid December that I have a number of photos ready but when I tasted this soup at lunch today it went right to the top of the list!
This is definitely my “go to” soup. I especially look forward to making it if I still have a mixture of tomatoes and dill leaves frozen from summer’s bounty. With the tomatoes already peeled this soup is just a matter of chopping some onions and garlic and putting things together. It only needs to simmer for a half an hour so you can make it right before you eat it.

This looks great Anne! This gives me an idea for lunch tomorrow. I also thought I would let you know that I hosted a dinner party at my house last week and as a student (with your cookbook being the only one I have), I made a delicious meal! I used your spinach dip recipe, the rhubarb cordial recipe with some frozen rhubarb instead of fresh rhubarb (but it still turned out really well), and I made your tea biscuits last week. My housemates are loving the fact that I am in a cooking/baking mood as it always smells and tastes so good! Your recipes are very easy to follow and they have turned out great every time! Mom told me about this blog, and I will definitely follow it now! Thanks for all the great recipe ideas!
I cooked this soup for dinner today! Yummy. I don’t like tomato as you know but I really enjoyed it:D
