This is my fathers secret tomato mint soup. Its a staple at my house. The mint leaves add so much warmth to the Tomato Mint Soup and it feels so light on the stomach. This is an excellent home remedy Tomato Mint Soup when you are sick. Tomato Mint Soup clears up the blocked nostrils in no time. The addition of mint also aids in digestion. I used to get super excited when I was young seeing this Tomato Mint Soup made. I was given the task of tying the mint leaves together with a cotton thread and then the mint was simmered in the soup along with the thread. Somehow it brought so much joy. The whole process was so much fun. Today, this has become my sons favorite Tomato Mint Soup. This Tomato Mint Soup has just 5 main ingredients plus seasoning. Here is how to do it.

First, we need to blanch the tomatoes to remove the skin of the tomatoes. Boil water in a kettle and drop the tomatoes in boiling water. Let it boil for 5 minutes. Remove off heat. When cool enough to handle, peel the skin of the tomatoes.
