Another classic that you definitely find in most family recipe books. This soup is quite popular and we see why. Pair it with a sandwich and you have a quick lunch on the go.
To make it you will need:
1lb ripe tomatoes, peeled and chopped
3 oz chopped onion
¼ lb chopped young carrot
1 litre of chicken or vegetable stock
Salt and pepper
½ pt single cream
Chopped chives or basil to garnish
Simmer the vegetables with one and a half pints of chicken stock until tender.
Puree the soup in a blender until it is very smooth. Add the seasoning and remaining stock.
If the soup is to be served cold then pour in the cream and chill. If it is to be served hot bring the cream to a boil in a clean pan and add the soup gradually.
Serve scattered with basil or chives. If you like a extra flavour for a change add nutmeg to the soup as it cooks and sprinkle a little on the top to serve.
