my Tomato Soup with Cannellini Beans recipe!

After our Christmas in July picnic and I heard such great things about our yummy tomato soup that I decided to share the recipe! It’s such a simple soup and a great dinner after a busy day. I like it with some beautiful fresh crusty sour dough from the likes of the Burleigh Baker or Paddock Bakery but my little foodie friend Natalie suggests adding some brown rice to make it a hearty meal in itself. It’s also my go to winter warmer for picnics because you can pour it into a thermos and take it with you anywhere!
