Cream of Tomato Soup

I used to make a really thick mixture of tomatoes, onion, and chilli – so chunky it was almost a salsa – called it a soup and ate it with Bread. Galit wasn’t so keen on this, preferring a creamy texture, and the recipe got adapted to cater for her taste. It is a great match up for a Pain de Campagne (French Country Bread).
