Tasty Tomato Soup..
« on: September 20, 2012, 14:20 »
My very easy tasty tomato and onion soup..

Get a pile of tomatoes - chopped
Get half as much onions - chopped
Teaspoon sugar
S&P to taste

Fry the onions in marge for a few mins in a large saucepan big enough for all to go in.. don't let them go brown. Add the tomatoes, sugar and S&P and give a good stirr.. Normally no water needs to be added.

Cook for about 20-30 mins and then push through a sieve leaving only the seeds and a few skins that aren't pushed through..

This is now the most bestest pure tomato soup you can make!!

Re-heat if required and add a dash of milk if too thick and milk and flour if too thin.

Enjoy..  GJC

Sounds good. :) Maybe one year I'll have enough tomatoes all at one time to make some. ::)

So how big a "load" of tomatoes would make, say, 2 or 4 servings?

2lb,as I said you can dilute it to make it go further by adding some stock or a cube & water. It is supposed to be a thin soup. So tasty though,I add lots of garlic. If I'm freezing it I add the stock cube & just a little water to save space n the freezer.

Hi Aragula - I normally make a big pot full at a time... So I suppose you would need at least 2 normal medium toms per person for an average serving.  Difficult. Just give it a go and see.. You will really enjoy it. It has been a family recipe for 3 generations now..  It need to be  thickish - not as diluted as the tinned tom soups..  :D 

We also dunk a whole slice of bread in it and add a bit of sugar on top..

Are you trying to teach grannies how to suck eggs Gavin?  :lol: most of us do something similar  :D

This year a lot of my toms got Botrytis, but this is what I do in the winter when I haven't got any left in the freezer.
I buy a tetrapack of Italian sieved tomatoes (passata) from Tescos for 29p for 500ml, heat, add salt/pepper/chilli powder to taste - it tastes just like home made should  :D
Sorry but it's true  :lol:

I've used the packs of passata in the past as a base too. :) . This is why I was asking about quantities for smaller portions with fresh tomatoes, as my initial response was I tend not to have gluts of tomatoes. ::)
