Tomato Soup with Basil

Delicious tomato soup, that is low in fat and has no carbs. =)
Perfect for Spring and Summer, as it is amazing both hot and cold!

What you'll need:

  • 4 Large Ripe Tomatoes
  • 3 Large Onions
  • 4 Cloves of Garlic
  • 2 Bay Leaves
  • 1 Handful of fresh Basil Leaves
  • 1 Cup of White Wine
  • (3 tbsp) Olive Oil
  • Water
  • Sea Salt & Pepper
  • Nutmeg
  • Oregano

How to make it:

  1. Start of with taking a large pot full of water. Bring it to a boil and put the tomatoes inside to scald.
  2. Peel and chop both the onions and the garlic into chunks, and place them in a pot with olive oil and the bay leaves. Leave it until the onions start getting translucid.

    (or, if you want a low fat version)

    Peel and chop both the onions and the garlic into chunks, and place them in a microwave safe recipient for 6 minutes. Afterwards place them in the pot with a glass of water and the bay leaves and let it cook until translucid.
  3. Once your tomatoes are scalded (you should notice cracks in the skin) peel them while they're still hot. Use the help of a fork and a knife so you don't burn yourself.
  4. Chop your tomatoes into chunks and add them with the onions. Add water until completely covered and bring it to a boil.
  5. Add the wine and let it boil for approximately 7min.
  6. Season with  1 1/2 tbsp of sea salt, 1 tsp of oregano, and pepper and nutmeg to taste. Bring the heat down and let it simmer for 20 min.
  7. Mince your fresh basil and add it to the soup. Put in your 3 tbsp of olive oil (if you haven't added any yet) and take it off the heat.
  8. Mix well, serve it and enjoy =)!
