Tomato Soup with Haloumi Croutons

Everyone loves tomato soup and this one is so delicious, easy to make, gluten-free and low carb. It’s inspired by a gorgeous website I love called Feasting at Home but to make the cooking time faster I cut out the step of roasting the tomatoes. The flavour is still amazing but is so much simpler.…
