During our weekly Cooking Club, we take turns showing two dishes. Earlier last week, it was Andreas turn. I have blogged about the Beef and Noodle dish earlier. This one is about her other dish which she called simply Tomato Soup.
This soup goes well with some crusty bread or crackers.
- 1 or 2 onions, chopped
- 2 tablespoons of oil
- 2-3 lbs tomatoes
- 2-3 tablespoons tomato paste (optional)
- 2 carrots, cut into coins
- 1/2 bunch parsley, chopped
- salt and pepper to taste
|Andrea started off with sauteeing the onions in a sauce pan with the oil. When the onions were soften and translucent, took about 5 minutes, she added the carrots and the tomatoes and sauteed them for another 5 minutes. The tomato paste were added to increase the intensity of the tomato flavour. Then water is added to the sauce pan, just enough to cover the vegetables. This has to be brought to a boil and simmered until the vegetables are soften, about 15 minutes.
|Once the vegetables are soften, she added the parsley and cooked for another 5 minutes. She then seasoned the soup with some salt and pepper.
|Lastly, she pureed the soup using a hand blender. This is a very healthy soup and it’s a good way to encourage kids to eat vegetables.
Andreas, thanks for showing us the Tomato Soup and the Beef and Noodle.
