Tomato Soup

For a long time I have been thinking of trying such a recipe, but I was afraid of simply making a tomato puree, which is at least what I heard when I was told about tomato soup. In addition, I wanted a simple recipe, which is prepared quickly, without many preparatory operations.

Yes, and it seems that I found the perfect recipe - it is an Italian tomato soup recipe, it really comes out a soup with a very good and complete taste. I recommend it, it is delicious cold and warm, especially this season of natural, sweet tomatoes. I definitely recommend serving it with homemade croutons, or flavored toast.

The only remark, I liked the idea that the tomatoes do not peel, but in the end I would peel them, this will make the soup even finer.

Ingredients

Tomatoes
1 kg
must be well ripened tomatoes
Red peppers
1 piece
White onion
1 piece
Garlic cloves
3 pieces
Butter
50 g
optional
Olive oil
50 ml
Salt
1 tsp
Basil
1 tsp
dried or fresh
Sugar
1 tsp

Step by step

1

In a saucepan, melt the butter together with the olive oil.

Add diced onions and chopped onion, cook for 2-3 minutes together.

2

Add the chopped bell pepper, cook for another 3-4 minutes, stirring periodically.

3

Then add the diced tomatoes.

I recommend before scalding them for a few seconds in boiling water and peeling them.

4

Let the vegetables cook / simmer over medium heat for 15-20 minutes, until well softened.

5

Blend the soup well.

6

It came out thicker to me, and I added more water until I reached the consistency we like.

Put it back on the fire, add the basil and let it simmer for another 5-10 minutes.

7

After this time, pass it a little more with the blender, it will be even finer.

Season with salt, add sugar (it is to take from the acidity of the tomatoes).

8

Prepare the homemade croutons and serve the soup. You can add 1 tablespoon of yogurt, or sweet cream, Fhiladelphia cream cheese to the plate.

Good appetite!
