So I bought all those tomatoes from Woky Joe because I just love this soup.
A great recipe if you have a glut of tomatoes or can buy some supermarket ones on marked down price! It’s a real favourite in the Strickers household.
Fresh Tomato Soup
10 – 12 tomatoes (the riper the better)
1 bulb of garlic
2 red onions (white will do, but red are better)
2 litres of homemade or good quality stock (chicken works well as does gammon or vegetable)
1 tbl sp coconut oil
Freshly ground black pepper
Pre-heat your oven to 190C, 375F, gas 5.
Wash and cut you tomatoes in half.
Peel the garlic cloves.
Peel and slice the onions.
Place the tomatoes cut side up on a baking tray, sprinkle the garlics and onion over and around the tomatoes. Dib bits of coconut oil over the veggies. Season well with salt and pepper.
Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes so that the onions start to tinge and the tomatoes are well cooked.
Transfer all the vegetables into a large pot with the stock in and heat through.
Whizz with a blender.
When cooking the tomatoes lay slices of streaky bacon on top of them. Before transferring to the pan, remove the bacon and save for chopping and topping on the whizzed up soup.
