I can’t believe that the summer is over! Rainy days like today make me want to pack my bags and go far far away (which will actually happen in just 5 weeks – guess where I’m going!) There is one thing that makes me feel better on the grey fall days and that is a a big bowl of freshly made soup. I still have a lot of garden tomatoes and since salad was out of the question today I have decided to try a combination that has been in my head for a while now – curry, tomatoes & honey. The taste is surprising but oh so good! We didn’t really eat a bowl, we ate a whole pan of soup with just the two of us. One thing is sure, we are warmer and happier. How are you dealing with the summer-fall transition?
1kg ripe tomatoes, blanched, peeled and roughly chopped
2 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp honey
2 tsp organic tomato purée
3 tsp panaeng curry paste
200ml coconut milk
2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
500ml vegetable stock
Peel the onion and chop it into small pieces. Heat olive oil in a large pan, add the onion, then fry until lightly colored. Add tomato purée, curry paste and cook for about 3 minutes. Tip in the tomatoe, honey and cilantro and cook again for 3 minutes. Pour vegetable stock and bring to the boil. Stir well, cover, then simmer for 20 mins, stirring occasionally.
Transfer the soup into a food processor and blitz until it’s smooth. Serve with coconut milk.
Enjoy and keep warm!!!
