Fresh Tomato Soup
When my tomatoes are growing faster than I can use them in salads I make this soup. It is nice hot or cold.
1 -1.5 Kgm ripe red tomatoes
2 teaspoons salt or to taste
1/4 cup of rice
Put the tomatoes into a large pan, chopping them into large chunks. Cook on medium until the tomatoes are turning into mush. You can add some garlic and or onions if you like. Once the tomatoes are cooked a bit add in your rice and cook away some more – up to an hour. The rice helps to thicken the soup. Mash it down with a stick blender and you are done!
I like to serve my soup with some yoghurt and basil. Yummm! I don’t press my soup through a sive to remove the pips – but you can if you wish.
