    Tomato Soup

    Hi guys

    I bet people here, or their family.. or neighbours.. have greenhouses FULL of tomatoes this week.

    Get lots of them if you can!

    Place in large roasting tin, so you cant get more in, but a single layer of them only. (Dont mound them)
    Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with a little salt and pepper and a few flakes of dried chilli flakes if you like some heat. Smash up one or two garlic cloves and drop in. No need to grate or chop.. just smash with side of knife skin on.. and drop in

    Spinkle a few herbs on top. I used oregano and marjoram, but whatever you have and like

    Roast in a low heat oven... 150'C ish.. for about an hour ... stir gently a couple of times and see them all split and soften and go lovely and moist

    then blitz them up in a blender (OR use a hand blender carefully) and the pour through a fine sieve into a bowl or a pan for heating again when you want to eat.... scraping the inside of the sieve with a spoon to force it through, and you're left with a dry pulp of skins, seeds etc in the sieve for your compost bin and a lovely pan/bowl of soup underneath.

    Scrape the last drops of soup off the bottom of the sieve so you dont waste it

    And jobs done!

    No stock guys... just tomato's herbs garlic seasoning and love.
    It'll keep for 3 or 4 days in the fridge with a lid on too.

    And it's AWESOME

    thick, deep flavour, painfully healthy and simple heaven

    Which is why it WON'T keep for three or four days in the fridge - about one hour - if it even gets there!

    Yum yum!

    Exactly what I was thinking. I actually had a stomach rumble reading that. Guess what tomorrow's lunch is likely to be.

    Needs 'croutons' though .... by which I mean slices of baguette, seared on one side in a grill pan, garlic rubbed on the other and then a grilled mushroom and/or cheese topping.

    Re: Tomato Soup

    because the second day is ALWAYS better for soup

    Re: Tomato Soup

    I've been experimenting with butternut squash soup, but I haven't tried slow roasting them before blitzing...

    so perhaps slow roasting the squash with some onions....

    Re: Tomato Soup

    Dont use too many onions with butternut squash

    it's not strong enough flavour to stand up to the onions

    but I would certainly try rosemary

    then masybe when it's done, serve with feta cheese blocks floating in it

    and plenty of chilli with this one!

    Re: Tomato Soup

    A red sweet pepper would probably add a bit of depth to it too.

    Re: Tomato Soup

    I know, I know. Holy thread necro, but... given the negatives I've been posting about today I wanted to throw something positive into the mix. Made this recipe again this morning and it's *exactly* what I needed (including beetroot and sweet red peppers). Thanks to Zak33 for posting it originally!

    I'd personally cream it up, or look to make a full-on veloute and serve in large espresso cups....

    remember when eating beetroot.. the morning after can be a real shock.... just remember what you ate and the panic subsides really fast.
