It was snowing(yup, in October!!) and chilly out this week, and i was trying to decide what to make for dinner....and then i settled on this, my friend Roisin's homemade tomato soup. Col, i know you asked me for the recipe the other day, I forgot, sorry. So here it goes as best as i can translate my scribbled down recipe.
4 can diced tomato, or 2 large ones 1/2 pkg Bacon, chopped 4 lg. Carrot, chopped evenly 4 Celery stalks, chopped evenly 1 lg Onion, chopped 2-3 cans Chicken Broth
Saute the bacon and onions in the stock pot. Once the bacon and onion are well browned and onions are soft add the celery and carrot, sweat about 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cover with chicken broth. Bring all to a boil. Once boiling turn down to a simmer and leave to simmer for 1 hour with lid on. Use immersion blender or transfer carefully to a standard blender,blend until all is smooth. Taste, if too tart add a pinch of sugar. Serve with a little splooge of milk(optional). This makes a very large pot. Freeze leftovers in ziploc bags. Be sure to leave out the milk if freezing.
i have made this with turkey bacon before and it works just fine...and i think it browns faster and better. I topped it with some toasted pumpkin seeds and enjoyed.
