Healthy soup

Carrots and beetroot add flavour and sweetness to balance the tanginess from the tomatoes and also vibrant colour to the soup making it eye-pleasing, soul comforting.

I have skipped adding any oil or butter to this recipe, however, if you wish you can add butter as per your taste. The taste was awesome. Adding fresh basil leaves gives a nice aroma and taste to the soup.
