CHUNKY TOMATO SOUP


Nothing beats slurping up a bowl of warm tomato soup that is super easy to prepare from your own kitchen.  It tastes so much better than the store bought versions.  Transform this soup with a little twist by adding some of your favorite herbs or spices. Try making it thick or thin, chunky or smooth, the way you love them  most.

My method involves  a quick and much easier way  eliminating the blending process but this is a personal choice. I prefer my soup in its original state, love to bite into a chunky bit of tomato in them.

Have added  some chili powder for extra hotness also for  its  beautiful color. This can easily be replaced with freshly ground black pepper if the chili powder isn't available in your kitchen.

CHUNKY TOMATO SOUP
Serves    :    4

6 medium tomato chopped
2 medium onion chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
2  tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons tomato paste
salt and sugar to taste
1/2 tsp chili powder (optional)
4 cups vegetable stock/water
cilantro for garnish

METHOD

Heat the oil in a deep pot. Saute onion and garlic until fragrant.

Add in chopped tomato and salt, cook until tomato turns soft.

Now add the tomato paste and chili powder, cook for a minute.

Add the stock, bring to boil and simmer for 5 minutes.

Remove from heat, season with sugar and extra salt if needed. Garnish with cilantro at the time of serving.

I hate store bought packets are the taste is too artificial and sweet. So homemade soups are any day best.

hi treat and trick, great idea for a change- ie to mince the tomatoes instead of blending them.
wanna try this also, hmmm with the chili flakes.. but the chili flakes that i bought at the supermarket are not hot at all.
have a nice day
