A cup of mom’s hot homemade tomato soup, that warms you up all over!
2oz unsalted butter
1 tbsp white flour
4 large tomatoes diced
1 small onion chopped
2 potatoes with the skin taken off and cubed
1 small bell pepper diced
salt to taste
1 tbsp ginger and garlic (optional)
1/4 cup whipping cream (optional)
1 tbsp ginger and garlic
2 cups very small noodles
In a big pot add the butter and let it melt then go ahead and add the flour and cook this until it becomes really fragrant and changes color, next go ahead and add tomatoes, onions, and potatoes, stir well making sure all the ingredients have incorporated really well, next add enough water to just cover the vegetables, to speed up the process you can add hot water, at this time add your salt and the ginger and garlic stir again and cover the pot and let it simmer until the potatoes are cooked. Once the potatoes are cooked thorough and really soft, take the lid off and let it cool down a little bit before you use a hand blender or a regular blender to blend it until it is nice and smooth. Add the noodles and the bell pepper as well as the whipping cream. Serve with crackers or toast drizzled with olive oil!!
