Vegetarian tomato soup with herbs

In most cases tomato soup is made from Sunday broth with addition of tomato puree. But I decided to change it and to prepare the vegetarian tomato soup by using peeled canned tomatoes. I must confess that I usually avoid making this soup because I don’t like it… I prefer to use tomatoes in salads or in sauces. In this version of tomato soup I use vegetable stock as the base. Cooked vegetables will be used to decoration.
