This easy tomato soup - and I am not exaggerating - my mom used to serve every Saturday lunch with fish fingers. It is incredibly fast and satisfying, especially for kids. The more cheese, the better. During The Summer Season try to mix it up with fresh tomatoes, you won’t regret it. Bon Appetite!
My tomato soup is suitable for kids from 2 plus, mainly because of the seasoning. Nothing else. Reduce on the spice and serve the soup to infants from 1 plus. Easy on cayenne pepper, even though my little one loves it spicy too.
Total Time: 15 minutes
300g tomato purée
1 large onion, peeled
2 teaspoons of vegeta spice without sodium glutamate or sea salt
2 tablespoons of raw sugar
A pinch of herbs: dried oregano, Provencal herbs, satureja
A pinch of cayenne pepper
1 handful of fresh basil to finish, hardly chopped
Semi-hard cheese to serve with (I use Edam or Mozzarella), finely grated
In a medium deep pan pour around 1 litre of hot boiling water.
Tomato purée in. Mix with a balloon whisk and try consistency with a spoon. It should be rather thick than liquid, but still soupy.
Season with vegeta. Flavour up with sugar, herbs and spices. Give it a good stir and taste. Season accordingly.
Gently place the onion and let it simmer for about 10 minutes.
Finish with fresh basil and cheese. The Easy Tomato Soup is great especially on the next day, when all the taste comes within.
Makes 5 serves.
