It’s always nice to come home to your welcoming family:
I was eager to get back into the kitchen and asked Rich if he had any requests. I probably could have guessed it because he always says carrot soup– not because it’s his favorite because it’s really the only thing he can remember that I’ve made.
I didn’t have all the ingredients so I decided to meet him half way by coming up with a tomato soup with the ingredients that I had:
- 1 tbsp oil
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 3 tomatoes
- 1 cup of veggie broth
- 4 sprigs of fresh thyme
- A sprinkle of veggie mozzarella
- 1 Green Apple (sweet not granny smith)
- Dash of salt
I heated the olive oil in a deep pot with the garlic, chopped tomatoes, thyme, and half of the apple:
Then I added the veggie broth and simmered just long enough to make some garlic bread on my George Foreman Grill (5 minutes).
I put it all in a blender and blended for about 5 minutes before straining and serving with some vegan mozzarella and more sliced apple.
This made 2 medium sized bowls (I would recommend doubling everything for a normal soup recipe). It was really crisp, delicious, and EASY! It really is about the ingredients and this recipe is really versitile, you could simmer some onions with the garlic, add lime juice, or even USE MANGOES INSTEAD. I feel like this is only the beginning of tomato soups with fruit for me.
