One of my goals for 2020 was to eat more plant based and yesterday I decided try out a vegetarian recipe. I made the most delicious, rich, creamy homemade tomato soup with fresh basil and loads of garlic.. 🧄🍅🧅 I’m telling, this is the real deal! 💥 Made from scratch and filled with good nutrients, it’s also cheap and super easy to make – so there’s no reason not to try it!
In case you’d like to try it (which you should!), here’s what you need;
Ingredients (4 persons)
4 eggs – 1 large white onion – 2 cloves of garlic – olive oil – 4 tbs tomato pure – 2 boxes of chopped tomatoes with garlic – 5 dl water – 1 cube vegetable broth (dissolve in hot water) – 3 dl cooking creme – fresh basil – freshly ground sea salt & pepper
Boil the eggs in 8 minutes, cool of in cold running water and set aside. Chop onion and garlic and fry in a cast iron pot (I have this one from Le Creuset) with olive oil until golden. Add tomato pure and stir for one minute. Add vegetable broth, cooking cream and chopped tomatoes, bring to a boil and cook for 30 minutes on medium heat. Chop a handful of fresh basil and add to the soup, season to taste with sea salt and fresh pepper. Use an immersion blender to puree your soup.
I served with hard boiled eggs and toasted bread with olive oil & cheese.. Enjoy!
