If you want that comforting bowl of creamy tomato soup but don’t like the idea of adding lugs of cream and throwing the calories through the roof, then I have a little tip for you…bread!
I love roasted tomato soup and its a great simple dinner or lunch. I place some tomatoes, red onions and garlic on a tray, drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper and roast them in the oven for about 45 minutes, depending on how much I have. I sometimes add sweet red peppers to this recipe but didn’t have any at the time.
Then I put everything into a pot and add some boiling water. Now before I blend it into a smooth soup, I add a chunk of stale bread into the pot. Let it soak in all the flavours and this is what makes the soup creamy! You can also do this with some rice, which ever you prefer. Then blend into a smooth soup and add fresh basil if you want.
It’s a great cheat to get that creamy taste…or you could just add cream!
