Tomato Soup with Spring Onions twist

Winter is the coldest season of the year. It is caused by the axis of the Earth in the respective hemisphere being oriented away from the Sun. Different cultures define different dates as the start of winter, and some use a definition based on weather, but when it is winter in the Northern Hemisphere it is summer in the Southern Hemisphere, and vice versa. In many regions, winter is associated with snow and freezing temperatures. At the winter solstice, the days are shortest and the nights are longest, with days lengthening as the season progresses after the solstice.

In my place, Winter means lots and lots of Soups. Soups doesn't have to be extra ordinary. Everyday soup is a simplest one. One of those Soups are Tomato Soup. In Winter, Tomatoes are more cheaper. So, tomato soup is something which we prefer to eat every other day, as it is too tasty , and takes only 15 minutes to cook. Well, out of habit of trying something new, I made some changes in my typical Tomato Soup. And I am really happy to say, it turns out to be really delicious.
