Tomato soup

blouse - Object, backpack - Longchamp

Getting dressed is like making tomato soup. At least when putting on this orange "draped" shirt and using my red backpack. Basically it comes down to this: where you add some carrots to the tomatoes (even though in this outfit it’s the other way around) to make the “liquid dish” more tasteful, the red backpack spices up the orange blouse.
(Please pardon me for the super bad quality of the picture: something must be seriously wrong with my camera.)

Do you feel like having (and making) some tomato soup yourself?

All you need
0,75 kg tomatoes
1 onion
1 carrot
1 twig of thyme (or oregano or Mediterranean herbs)
1 clove of garlic
1 can of tomato purée
1 tbsp of olive oil
2 stock cubes
pepper and salt
 (You’re a meat eater? You might need some minced meat to make little meatballs, if you want.)

How you do it
Cut the tomatoes into quarters, chop the onion and carrot into small pieces and do the same to the thyme.
Dissolve the stock cubes in hot water (1 liter).
Heat the olive oil in a cooking pan over a low heat, together with the tomato purée (1 min.). Tip in the onion, garlic and carrot and have them heated for 5 minutes.
Add the bouillon (water), tomatoes and thyme. Turn up the heat and wait until everything is bubbling (it takes about 7 minutes). Lower the heat and have the mixture boil for another 7 minutes (the pieces of tomatoes must fall apart before you turn off the heat).
Mix the soup and it’s ready to be served! (Don’t forget to sprinkle in some salt en pepper to spice it up.)
