With an over abundance of tomatoes from the garden I hunted for recipe's to help me use them. I came across a tomato soup recipe and made it my own to suit my families taste. The hint of orange and garlic in this soup is what makes it stand out from others. It is fresh, bright and a beautiful addition to your dinner table ! enjoy

After 15-20 soup will start to thicken, remove from heat. **REMOVE the tomato skins as best you can**

Cool soup and then run through a food processor. Strain the soup through a fine mesh colander and then let it chill in refrigerator.

You can serve this in bowls, ramekins or shot glasses. I have a picture above with the shot glasses and it makes a really elegant and impressive appetizer.
