Did I ever tell you guys that consistency was not one of my virtues? I try, my intentions are truly the best – but somehow my life always gets in the way. Thank G-d.
I hope none of you have fatally expired whilst holding your breath waiting for me.
The past two days I have had everyone sick, and been to the doctor 3 times, and one appointment off the island of Montreal. It’s been a little busy, and NO sleep whatsoever – so forgive me.
But I am going to submit my kids fave food in the entire world! When I tell them this is for supper – they could not be happier.
Are you ready?
Tomato Soup. Uh-huh.
homemade from scratch. Here is the recipe:
The yummiest easiest soup in the world
1tbs Olive oil
1 large onion diced small
2 x 1,89l of Tomato Juice
1 roasted pepper
(roast in oven at 450F for 10 mins, then 4 mins under grill at 500F. Remove from oven, place in a bowl and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Let cool. The pepper will sweat and the skin will just peel off.)
Salt and Pepper to taste.
1 cup of short grain brown rice ( optional)
Sautee onions till golden. Add tomato juice, bring to the boil, allow to simmer for 10 mins. Add Roasted pepper. Add Salt and pepper. Fill one empty can (3/4)with cold water, add to soup.
Use immersion hand blender to puree everything.
Then if you like add rice and let cook for a further 20 mins.
We always add some grated cheese to the mix, et voila – c’est magnifique!
By the way, my kids would not go near a tomato with a 10 foot barge pole! Yet they guzzle this down like crazy. Try it – you’ll see.
Tomorrow I am going to roast some butternut and puree it in the soup. I will see if they notice a difference.
