When I started thinking of the second day, I was so confused. Well I confessed that I had a hard time thinking of actual colours when I had to make the plate very colourful. so it took some planning. It all happened over a period of time. We make Mixed Vegetable Cream Soup, as part of our regular diet. Best part is that even my boys love that soup. So I was wondering if I could try some other soup on them. Though I used to make roasted tomato soup for myself, I don’t think I have actually given it to the boys.
This tomato soup makes a wonderful diabetic food as it is healthy and apt. If you want you can skip the butter/ghee, thought I have added just a teaspoon.
I decided I will make it along with something else to make it a colourful plate. So when I think of my kids, I natually think of toast, cheese and what I can top it with.
Thus got created a colour platter of Cheese toast with Tomato Soup. Though this Tomato Soup is almost similar to what I have already posted, little changes made a whole lot of differences.
