Here’s another culinary delight from our kitchen.
This recipe is dedicated to Julie Walters and her famous TV sketch.
EASY TOMATO SOUP small
total time 35 minutes
1 carrot, peeled and finely diced
1 medium potato, peeled and finely diced
1 Tbsp butter
1/2 onion finely diced
1 400g tin chopped/whole plum tomatoes
1 Tbsp tomato puree
1 tsp crushed garlic
1 tsp sugar
1 Tbsp apple sauce
1/2 pint chicken stock
a few good grinds of black pepper
cream or 1 Tbsp milk
Cook carrot and potato (I use a pressure cooker for 5 minutes)
Melt butter in medium saucepan.
Add onions over a medium/low heat, saute 5 minutes until soft.
Add the other ingredients to onions. Carrot, potato, tomatoes, tomato puree, garlic, sugar, apple sauce, with stock, some black pepper and stir well.
Bring to the boil and simmer for 20-25 minutes until everything is cooked through.
With a wand blend the soup to make it lump free.
Stir in cream/milk.
Serve and enjoy.
We’ll have this for tea tonight with a cheese toastie and what’s left of the fruit cake to follow.
And here’s a bowl of the tomato soup we had this evening.
