Tomato Soup Recipe
This is a hearty and delicious tomato soup recipe perfect for winter evenings. Enjoy it with your family
- 1/2 Kg. tomatoes
- 1 small beetroot
- 2 red carrots I prefer the sweeter Delhi carrots in season now
- 1 small onion
- 5-6 cloves small garlic
- 1/2 inch ginger
- 1/2 tsp. Black pepper
- 1/2 tsp. oregano
- 1 tsp. butter
- Croutons to serve
Peel and cut all the vegetables into small pieces.
To the chopped veggies add chopped onion, garlic and ginger with a little salt and water and pressure cook for two whistles. Once cool, take it out and blend it well to a smooth paste. Sieve it and put the soup back on fire. Add the butter and let it dissolve.
Now add oregano and black pepper to taste.
Adjust seasoning to taste. Serve hot with croutons.
- You could add a little sugar if the tomatoes are too sour. I didn't need to as the sweetness of the carrots balances it out.
- I generally toast the bread with butter. You could deep fry the bread pieces for home-made croutons.
- You can omit the beetroot if you don't like it.
