Simple and quick, yummy and creamy tomato soup!

I made this soup today and realized that I haven't yet shared this recipe with you! I make it often because it's super easy to make, takes only a few minutes to put together, cooking time is only 25 minutes, then you blend, add cream, and eat! I hope you will try it. Make sure you have on hand some nice french bread to have with it!
2 carrots (peeled and chopped)
2 or 3 garlic cloves (minced)
olive oil
1 large can of diced tomatoes (28 oz)
1 ltr vegetable broth
1/2 cup cream (any cream, whipping cream, double cream, any really)
salt and pepper

Heat about a tbsp of olive oil in a small soup pot. Add the chopped carrots, and cook for about 2 or 3 minutes, then add the garlic. Cook for another 30 seconds, then add the tomatoes. Stir. Add broth and stir longer until well mixed. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and let it simmer for about 25 minutes. Carefully blend and then return to pot. Add the cream and stir. Season with a little salt and pepper if you wish. Serve warm with some fresh french bread. :D
