What a busy week it has been. I'm being sucked into the vortex of kiddie birthday parties. Once you are in, you can never get out. As much fun as it is for the kids, its the same old, same old routine for the parents. The last four birthday parties I've been to have been at the same kids gym location. The same place, the same routine, the same pizza. I think I'm ready for a change of scene. A change of food scene atleast.
So today I decided to make myself a nice light creamy (light & creamy? stay with me!) tomato soup. Its been windy and cold in the NYC area and the sun has been its usual deceptive self around this time of year. After being in and out of the house for the umpteenth time today, I cozily settled in to have my soup and boy, did it deliver. The right amount of heat - from its spice and its temperature.

The soup is vegan and the "creaminess" comes from coconut milk.Since I used coconut milk, the soup was pretty light. The soup also has some standard indian spices, to give it a twist from the traditional recipe. It really worked for me, I hope you like the combination too.
