- 5 Ripe Tomatoes
- 1 Onion
- 3 Garlic Cloves
- A handful of Sun-Dried Tomatoes
- 100 ml of Creamy Milk
- Mozzarella Cheese (for garnish)
- 3 tablespoons of Tomato Paste
- Salt and Pepper (to taste)
- Prepping the Tomatoes: Start by making shallow cuts on the tomatoes’ skin, then place them in boiling water for about 5 minutes. Afterward, remove the tomatoes from the hot water and peel off the skin. Dice the peeled tomatoes and set them aside.
- Sautéing the Aromatics: In a large pot, heat some olive oil or butter. Add finely chopped onions and minced garlic cloves, along with the sun-dried tomatoes. Sauté these ingredients until the onions turn translucent and fragrant.
- Incorporating Tomato Paste: Stir in the tomato paste, allowing it to meld with the onions and garlic. This step infuses the soup with rich tomato flavor.
- Creating the Tomato Base: Combine the diced tomatoes with the sautéed mixture in the pot. Add 1.5 to 2 liters of fresh water to create the flavorful base of your soup. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Blending and Creaminess: Using a blender, carefully puree the ingredients into a smooth and velvety consistency. Return the blended mixture to the pot and pour in the milk cream. This addition lends a luxurious, creamy texture to your soup.
- Adding Mozzarella: Dice the mozzarella cheese and introduce it to the pot. As it melts, it imparts a delightful creaminess and mild tang to the soup.
- Final Touch: Let the soup simmer on low heat, allowing all the flavors to meld and the cheese to fully incorporate. Taste the soup and adjust the seasoning if necessary.
- Serving: Ladle the rich and fragrant Tomato Soup into bowls and garnish with additional mozzarella, a drizzle of cream, or fresh basil if desired. Serve alongside some crispy crackers for a perfect, comforting meal.
This Tomato Soup is a delightful, heartwarming bowl of goodness that captures the essence of fresh, ripe tomatoes, and the creamy mozzarella adds a delicious twist. It’s the ideal dish for any time of the year, whether as a soothing comfort food or a light and refreshing appetizer. Enjoy!
