There is nothing like a steaming hot bowl of tomato soup with croutons (Oh Boy! that is the must thing with tomato soup) on a cool windy night. Wow, Soups makes the winters bearable and pleasurable.
4 Red Tomatoes
1/2 Beet Root
3 cloves of garlic
1 boiled potato
1 bay leaf
1 tsp sugar
salt and pepper
2 tbsp cream (optional)
Cut tomatoes, carrots, onion, beet root and garlic in a big chunks. Pressure cook vegetables with 4 cups of vegetable stock or water salt and bay leaf. Once vegetables are done keep it aside to cool down. Fish out the bay leaf at this point and put everything in a grinder with a boiled potato and sugar. Grind it until smooth.
Now give it a boil in a pan stirring constantly (Taste it if acidic add more sugar) Just before serving add cream in it.
Serve hot with croutons(as many as u want) Pepper (straight from the grinder) and coriander leaf on top.
This recipe is also going for a SWC:Soups event hosted by Neha of TASTY RECIPES.
