Continuing on with the tomato theme from yesterday, I am going to share this awesome (if I do say so myself!) Tomato soup recipe. This soup is so yummy & delicious. It is very filling & perfect to freeze for lunches or dinners.
It is really easy & simple to make. I don’t even peel the tomatoes! More on that later. Lets get started.
The key to a good tomato soup is to use very ripe tomatoes. Bright red & juicy are the best as they have the most flavour.
In a large saucepan, place
2 kg of chopped tomatoes
2 medium sliced zucchini’s
2 medium sliced carrots
1 sliced red capsicum
2 shallots cut into 1 cm pieces
1/8 of a cup of olive oil
Cook on medium high until it starts to form a chunky sauce.
Add 500ml of stock. I used stock made with Vegeta which is a vegetable stock powder.
Using a stick blender, puree until smooth.
At this point you can strain the soup if you want to get rid of any tomato peels but I do have to say that if you blend it well enough, there really won’t be many (if any) at all.
Serve with croutons.
If you have leftovers, freeze it in serving sized containers.
Label & store in the freezer for lunches or dinners.
This is a great recipe to keep you feeling full & warm during these cold winters day without adding to the waistline.
