The tomato plants are literally ripening as fast as I can use the lovely little fruits now. I have lots of jars of homemade tomato sauces already in the store cupboard so this time I thought I would make some tomato soup as I was wondering what to have for lunch.
I simply chopped up the larger tomatoes, added a couple of chopped red onions, a few garlic cloves and went and snipped some Rosemary and Sage from the old tin bath of herbs outside the back door.
Everything was drizzled with olive oil and popped into the bottom oven of the Aga for a couple of hours, stirring once every twenty or so minutes, an amazing amount of liquid came out of the tomatoes!
Once everything was super, super soft I pulled out the herbs and whizzed the vegetables with my stick blender, nothing else was added and the resulting tomato soup is absolutely delicious, and very rich.
Today is a No Spend Day
... and it's more tomato soup for lunch :-)
