Tomato Soup



















Botanically a fruit, the tomato is nutritionally categorized as a vegetable. It is rich in calcium, phosphorus, Vitamin C & A and Carbohydrate. It acts as a stimulant to the kidneys and helps in washing away toxins. The red colour (lycopene) keeps aging at bay. Lycopene is an antioxidant which makes sure that there is no harmful free radicals in the system.
Tomatoes can be cooked alongwith vegetables, can be consumed raw in salad or delicious tomato soup can be made.

Tomato Soup (Step-by-Step)

















































Ingredients

500 gms. red and ripe tomatoes
2 medium potatoes
1 big onion
2 tbsp. sugar
salt - less than ¼ tsp.
fresh powdered black pepper -1/4 tsp.
4 cups water
1 tsp. butter
1 inch ginger (optional)
Fresh cream (from top of milk)

Method:

1. Cut the tomatoes in small pieces.
2. Cut the onion and potatoes lengthwise.
3. Heat 1 teaspoon butter.
4. Fry onion for few second, followed by potatoes.
5. Now add chopped tomatoes and ginger.
6. Add 4 cups of water.
7. Pressure cook the above. (about 2 whistles)
8. Cool the contents and Blend in mixer till smooth.
9. Strain to remove seeds and peels.
10. Boil the strained soup alongwith salt, sugar and pepper powder.
11. Serve hot with a swirl of fresh cream (make smooth with spoon) and pepper.
Note : I make this much soup for four persons. I never add any
thickening agent like cornflour or maida. Potatoes make the soup thick.

I have never made tomato soup. Looks like it is about to change. I have a ton of green tomatoes. Wonder if they will work?
