Tomato-Green Onion Soup


This simple, delicious and satisfying soup is a comfort food for me. I call it the wonder soup as preparation is very easy with two main ingredients only. Both the main ingredients tomatoes and spring onions make its flavour more palatable. This low in calories soup fills your stomach and suppresses hunger pangs for a longer duration. So, ideal for those who are weight watchers, so this soup comes out as a winner for its fat-fighting property
I use spring onions/green onions in this soup in place of regular red onions as they add a bit of texture, colour, and a milder taste to your cooking than regular onions. Regular onions have a pungent, strong smell which overpowers the tomatoes. Spring or green onions have lots of fibre and are a great source of vitamin A and K, sulphur, phosphorus and iron. And the tomatoes undoubtedly a miracle fruit, the rich source of antioxidants, perks up the flavour of this soup
