Recipe for this delicious lunch time soup.
With a kick!
I like to add chilli to this recipe during the winter months to give it some extra spice. Check out this interesting article on PepperHead.com providing 10 scientifically proven health benefits to adding chilli to your food.
I love this simple tomato soup recipe, its filled with my flavour and nutrients to keep you healthy & warm during those winter days.
Serves around 3/4 I would say. It serves a big pot.
1 large garlic clove
1 white onion
2 sticks of celery
tin of chopped tomatoes
5 vine ripened tomatoes
tbs of tomato puree
rock salt & grinded black peppercorns
700mls veg stock
(down to preference on how thick you want soup). 500ml would give it a thicker consistency.
Step 1 –
Put all veg in a colander and wash thoroughly. Chop up your white onion, carrots, garlic. chilli & celery into small chunks then add to large pot on medium to high heat. Add salt & pepper, give it a stir & leave to simmer for 10 minutes or until all veg has softened up.
Step 2 –
Cut tomatoes into quarters, add to the pot alongside your tin of chopped tomatoes & then add tablespoon of tomato puree. Add 700mls of Veg stock. Give it all a mix and bring to the boil then reduce heat & leave to simmer for a further 10 minutes.
Step 3 –
Take off the hob & purify to desired thickness. An optional step at this point & something I like to do a lot to create a herby taste.. Add leaves from a basil plant before purifying the soup, this gives it real flavour to the taste.
I love this soup served with either oatcakes & cheese, or homemade garlic bread with apple wood vegan cheese as seen above. Delllliciousss lunch time treat. It almost tastes like pizza!
