Chunky Tomato Soup

Chunky Tomato Soup

A vibrant, hearty, soothing, chunky tomato soup to brighten up the rainy season! The key to a delicious tomato soup is in roasting the tomatoes. Use herbs of your choice. My favorite herb is fresh coriander leaves and I like a chunky tomato soup.

Tomato Soup Recipe

Serves 3 persons

.

Ingredients:

4 tomatoes, apply oil and roast over fire, peel the skin, crush lightly

1 onion, sliced

2-3 garlic cloves, crushed

1 clove

1/2″ cinnamon stick

1/4 tsp black pepper pwd or red chili flakes

very small pinch nutmeg pwd

1 tbsp fresh coriander OR fresh mint leaves OR dried herbs of your choice

salt to taste

1 tbsp butter (optional)

1 tbsp olive oil

1 Heat oil and butter (optional) in a vessel, add the cinnamon, clove, onions and garlic and saute for 3 mts. Cool and blend to a paste.
2 Add the crushed tomato to the onion paste and saute for a mt. Add three cups of water, coriander leaves or dried herbs, nutmeg pwd, black pepper pwd and jaggery and let it simmer on low-medium heat for 25-30 mts or till it thickens slightly.
3Keep stirring once in a while while the soup is simmering. [You can blend the cooled tomato soup and simmer for 2 mts for a smooth soup]. I like the soup chunky hence, I have not blended the tomatoes.
4 Serve hot with croutons or garnish with fresh cream.

Note:

On a baking tray, place halved tomatoes, sprinkle herbs of your choice, 2-3 crushed garlic, drizzle olive oil over them and broil for 15 mts. Peel the tomatoes and lightly crush them.

    and croutons means fried bread crumbs in oil???

    • Sailu

      Lightly apply butter to whole wheat bread and toast in the oven till crisp. Cut them into small squares and serve as croutons instead of deep frying.

    What a great recipe! Just loved it! I did skip the tomato roasting step and bought cans of fire roasted tomatoes. So hearty yet so much healthier than the cream laden versions we find in restaurants.
