Last time I went to the Farmer’s market, I purchased several pounds of tomatoes, and they were yummy!!!! But after a while, I really got tired of my tomato sandwiches, and my tomato salads so I thought of fixing a soup. It is so light and refreshing, and can be eaten cold or warm which is much appreciative in this heat! Tomato soups are really easy to fix because they don’t require much ingredients. Tomatoes have so much aroma as they are, that the soup necessitates very few other ingredients.
Ingredients: 2 lbs of tomatoes, 1 medium sized onion chopped, 2 cups of chicken broth, 2 tsp of fresh thyme, boursin cheese, 1/2 tsp of salt, 1 Tbsp of sugar, pepper to taste, and olive oil.
Turn your oven to 450. Slice the tomatoes in half, and lay them flat cut side down. Drizzle olive oil over them and cook in oven for 10 minutes. When cooked, slide the top of the tomatoes and remove the skin. Set aside. In a large saucepan, place 1 tbsp of olive oil and sautee the onions until golden and soft. Add the chopped thyme, the tomatoes, 1/2 tsp of salt, 1 tbsp of sugar, and the broth. Bring the soup to boil. Reduce the temperature and let the soup simmer for 5-8 minutes. Place the soup in a blender and puree it. Serve the soup in individuals bowls, add 2 tbsp of crumbled garlic and parsley boursin cheese, and savour;-)
Bon Appetit and Happy Cooking!!!
