I really like Tomato soup .....But I am pretty picky about soup ....
Grego would agree the word picky can barely describe how ridiculous I get when we are talking about Asia's food choices...this man is seriously the MOST patient person on this planet!
I dont mind store bought ...like the kind you buy in the nice tetra packs in the Natural Food section of the grocery mart...Organic Carrot Cashew Ginger...or Butternut squash
These are passable...but when I flip the carton to inspect the ingredient list and sugar is up there as the second ingredient or something ridiculous like that...sometimes its a deal breaker and it never makes it into my cart
Carrot soup is just TOO easy to make and costs so little
Tomato soup I am picky too
I dont want soup that tastes like tomato sauce ....like icky and acidic
or loaded with sugar...cream ...or thickeners
I want smooth and velvety perfect ripe pretty Roma tomatoes
This soup works
quick to make
and if you want you can put a bit of milk or cream...or cashew cream (cashew butter and warm water)
to create a thickness that some just gotta have when it comes to Tomato
This recipe has Sun dried Tomatoes, just a bit of Tomato paste, and just a lil bit of cinnamon
that gives a crazy boost of flavour and warmth to make you feel cozy
I made some Rice cookies too for a bit of an easy grab and go carb for this weeks soup lunches
They are kinda boring but I think will do the trick for me ...they are just 2 cups of rice flour mixed with 1/2 Cup warm water then shaped into little cookies and squished with a fork. Baked @ 400 for 20 mins.
You can also repurpose this soup as a sauce if you like.
Great for Bodo pizza's
OR with pasta with a bit of fresh grated Parmesan
Maybe even throw some cooked Chicken in there too
Pretty great soup
Pretty great sauce too!
