Tomato soup

You probably already know that I am a soup addict! Perfect comfort food for cold and rainy days, which we have quite a few here in Holland! 

I just got home from a lovely vacation at Lanzarote,  together with hy husband Sander and our 7-months old daughter Janne. From the sunny Island back to the rainy and cold Netherlands!  What other reason do I need to make a big pan of soup!

Today I serve a homemade tomatosoup,  super easy to make, loaded with vegetables and easy to adjust to your own liking! 

Here’s What you need;

  • 500 grams of tomatos
  • 2 onions 
  • 1/2 – 1 carrot 
  • 1/2 – 1 spanish red pepper 
  • 2 large gloves of garlic 
  • 2 vegetable stock cubes
  • Small can of tomato puree 

Heat a little oil in a large pot, add the garlic, pepper and onions and broil. Chop the carrot and add. After a few minutes add the chopped tomatos and tomato puree. Let simmer for 2 minutes and then add 1.2 liter of water and the stock cubes. Bring to the boil and boil for about 10-15 minutes. Use a handmixer or blender to blend into a smooth soup. 

You can adjust the soup the way you like; left over veggies?  Add them together with the carrot! You can add some pasta or meatballs to make a more savoury soup. And why not try a few fresh herbs such as basil or koriander.
