Winter Tomato Soup

I call this winter tomato soup because its made using whole canned tomatoes, instead of the fresh summer tomatoes. But the flavors are all there!! A simple recipe for the cold nights!

What you’ll need:

  • Tomatoes (whole canned) – about 10 tomatoes along with 1 to 2 cups of juice
  • Onion (roughly chopped) – 1
  • Garlic – 4 cloves
  • Potato (roughly cubed) – 1
  • Pepper – 1 tsp or to taste
  • Paprika – 1 tsp or to taste
  • Italian Herb Blend – 1 tsp or to taste
  • Salt to taste

Method:

  1. In a large pot, saute the Onion and Garlic in some Olive Oil until soft.
  2. Add the Potatoes and Salt. Mix, cover and cook on med-low for 4-5 minutes.
  3. Add the  Tomatoes and juice, Paprika and Herbs. Cover and cook for another 5-6 minutes, until everything is cooked well and soft. Turn off heat.
  4. Let cool for a couple of minute. Blend until smooth in a blender. Be careful as it will still be very hot. Cover over the lid tightly with a kitchen towel.
  5. Pour the soup back into the pot, adjust water to desired consistency and heat. Enjoy!
