I love to make soups, and keep them in jars in the fridge for lunch or dinners during the week. Just tip some out into a bowl, heat and serve!
This is more for my own reference than anything else, but I have adapted a recipe from my Thermomix cook book and don’t wish to lose it!
half tsp ground black pepper
500g Ripe Tomatoes, halved (or canned whole tomatoes)
2 onions (quartered)
1 red capsicum
1 red chili (remove half the seeds for a milder flavour) or tabasco sauce to taste
50g tomato paste
1 tsp white wine vinegar
1 tsp sugar
Small bunch fresh parsley
2 tsp dried basil
2 stock cubes (or 2 tbsp Vege Stock Concentrate)
Sea Salt to taste
Cook all ingredients in the Thermomix for 15 minutes at 100 degrees C on speed 1. At the end of the heating time, blend for about 30 seconds going slowly from Speed 1 to Speed 8 (keeping the MC or a larger cup over the hole to avoid splashing – HOT!).
Adjust seasoning before serving. Serve sprinkled with parsley or basil.
(Note – if too spicy or salty, add sugar. If too sweet, add salt.)
For those that are not using a Thermomix (poor dears), you will need to food process the ingredients after you cook over a stove.
