Tomato Soup Thursday, December, 7, 2006

Filed under: Soups — coolpepper @ 1:49 pm

                                                  I always loved soups. But never ever tried making them, until a year back. One day I was chit chatting with one of my good friends. During our talks I got to know that she makes wide variety of soups. I could not stop myself and asked recipe for soup. She gave me Tomato soup recipe. The same day I prepared, my husband loved it. This time I prepared with very little modifications. 

                         Tomato Soup

                                             Tomato soup garnished with garlic bread crumbs

Tomato Tin – 1
Bay leaf – 1
Cinnamon – small piece
Cloves – 2
Olive oil – 1 tsp
Onions chopped – 1 Tbspn
Salt acc to taste
Black pepper powder (Acc to taste)
Basil powder 1-2 tbspn
Water 3-4 cups

1.Cook the chopped tomato by adding bay leaf, cinnamon, cloves for 5-7 min. Set aside.
2.Transfer the cooked tomatoes to the blender (Remove the bay leaf, cinnamon, cloves) and blend untill smooth.
3.Heat olive oil in a pot, saute the onion untill tender.
4.Add the blended puree to the pot.Add water.
5.Simmer until soup is reduced to the deisred consistency.
6.Season with basil and black pepper to taste.

Best combination : Garlic Toast

                         Garlic Bread

                                                  Garlic toast with tomato soup

1.I prepared this soup using the tinned tomatoes. Can also be made using the fresh ones.
2.Instead of olive oil , u can even use butter.
3.Caution: Before transferring the tomatoes to the blender make sure that the tomatoes are at room temp.Hot stuff create steam  which will blow the top off the blender.
4.Make sure you have removed the bay leaf, cloves, cinnamon before adding the tomatoes to the blender.
