Introduction: Get Over the Cold Tomato Soup

I had a cold, and what I really wanted as comfort food was a tomato soup.

Step 1: You Will Need


4 pear tomatoes cut in wedges
half and onion
1 red pepper
2 garlic cloves
water
pepper

Step 2: To the Pot


In a big pot, place Tomatoes, onion, pepper, garlic and some oil at the bottom.

Cook at medium heat, until the skin of the tomatoes begins to wrinkle.

Step 3: Blend It Up


Add water, depending o how  thick you want the soup.
Using a hand blender, blend everything to get an smooth texture.


Step 4: Final Touch

Let it boil for 5 minutes, add seasoning to taste
I like to use garlic salt and pepper.

I recommend adding  a touch of fresh ground pepper right before you eat it.

Tip:
Add flakes of Parmesan to make it even better!!

Your recipe looks great , I'd love to use it with a crockpot! Did you peel the tomatoes at all?

Some of the recipes I've seen use cream, which probably wouldn't fare well in a slow cooker... but other than that, peeling and pureeing some ripe tomatoes isn't a lot of work, so any idea why (all?) slow-cooker recipe use canned tomatoes (diced (plum) or paste (Roma))? Could it be the blanching?

I find it useful to put this sort of thing through a sieve, because the seeds don't blend too well.

Sure! I have both opinions at home, those who want it with everything and others like it trough the sieve.

I need to find a use for the sieved-out bits of skin & seed, so I end up throwing them into something else. And then I have to wash the sieve - it's silly really...
