One of my favorite inventions this summer has been this Carrot Tomato Soup. I started with the most basic ingredients- carrots, tomato sauce, water and salt. And then before I decided what to add next, I tasted it: perfect. Stop there!
Simple, tasty and healthy, it’s the perfect summer soup.
Carrot Tomato Soup1 pound carrots, scrubbed or peeled and then diced 8oz tomato sauce (1 small can)
8oz water (could substitute milk or cream for a creamier soup)
1 tsp sea salt Black pepper to taste Optional: olive oil to drizzle on top
1. Boil or steam carrots until tender. Let cool.
2. In a food processor or blender, combine carrots with tomato sauce, and water. Blend until smooth.
3. Season with salt and pepper.
3. Put in fridge if you’d like to serve a chilled soup, or reheat on stovetop for a warm soup. May also serve room temperature, as is my custom. You may choose to drizzle some olive oil on top of each portion before serving.
