Easy Peasy Vegetarian Recipes: Chunky Tomato Potato Soup

After the removal of my wisdom teeth I was left with enough tomato soup to feed the entire state of Maine. I had made way too much tomato soup and it was on the verge of going bad. However, pared with potatoes and other veggies, my new tomato soup diet doesn’t have to be so bland. So here’s a veggie-friendly chunky tomato potato soup recipe that you can try at home.
