Tomato soup

After a long break, I am back to routine! Had been to India for four weeks and it was a much-needed break. Well I had many posts pending and one among them is this wonderful healthy version tomato soup which I found in veggie belly’s website. The recipe she has is from the southern part of India when she was on a Ayurvedic retreat. It is for sure a refreshing and healthy version I have had in many years.

Ingredients:

3-4 medium tomatoes, chopped

1/4 cup grated carrot

1/2 medium red onion, chopped

2 garlic cloves, chopped

1/2 teaspoon chopped ginger

4 cilantro stems with leaves chopped


Preparation:

Place all ingredients in a saucepan, along with salt and enough water to cover the vegetables, about 3 cups. Bring to a boil, and make sure the tomatoes are cooked.

Let it cool a little, and blend the mixture into smooth liquid. Pass the soup through a strainer, pushing out all the liquid. Return the soup to the saucepan. If it’s too thick, add some water. Allow it to boil, turn off the heat and adjust the amount of salt, add little pepper and garnish with cilantro and serve hot!

    • I had a wonderful trip Nazneen. Thank you. My son turned two this June and it was his first trip to India. So the whole trip was very exciting and memorable.

  2. Taking a two year old to India is very admirable…couldn’t have been an easy flight I’m sure.

    Looks delicious! I am a huge fan of tomato soup.

    • Oh ya, it was quite a challenge to keep him occupied all through the journey but luckily he wasn’t cranky or crying…
      Hope you are doing good Ameena!
