Tomato soup

For Easter and a last few days I’ve been to the seaside. I went there to work on my college project but I also took a chance to relax and enjoy fresh air and the sun in the sky. That familiar scent of pine trees, a light breeze coming from the sea charged all of my batteries. So I returned to Zagreb full of energy, ready to post a lot more recipes and share everyday moments with all of you who visit my blog.

Tomatoes alway make me think of a wonderful garden full of Mediterranean vegetables in front of a beautiful terrace of a house where I spent most of my summers as a kid. The people who we rented the house from had an amazing garden where we could find the most delicious vegetables and a small path leading to an amazing beach.

This is my grandma’s recipe and it’s one of my favourite. Take a chance on it and try it out, any feedback would be wonderful. Hope you like it as much as I do!

    I completely agree with you. I remember when I was kid , in my parents garden the tomato had a smell and delicious taste . Nowadays some of the tomatoes in the market looks beautiful but with no taste and no smell!!
