Soup and Sandwich Anyone
I must stop banging on about the Avondale Market, click here to read about this wonderful Market
But I am thrilled with the wonderful fruit and vege.
These tomatoes were 99c a Kilo and I used them to make my Grandma's Tomato Sauce
but also I made this beautiful soup.
It couldn't be simpler
Its really important to add sugar and salt to tomatoes.
Such a simple flavour boost. Not enough to be bad for you.
Don't forget, moderation in everything.
Plus I like to add a little vinegar when I am cooking tomatoes.
Even though Tomatoes are acidic, that little sweet acid from the cider vinegar is just another boost.
So to prepare the soup
2 kilos of ripe tomatoes
Just cut off any spots and roughly large chop the tomatoes
Onto a baking sheet
Sprinkle with Sea Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper
Also sprinkle over with about a tablespoon of sugar
Throw on a few sprigs of thyme
And then drizzle with Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Bake at 150C for about 30-40 minutes
Meanwhile peel 2 red onions
Slice and saute in a little olive oil
Season with Sea Salt and Pepper
Cook till tender
When everything is ready
Combine everything in a blender
Back into the pot
Taste and add 2 tablespoons of cider vinegar
You may need more seasoning
It's up to you
An egg sandwich completes this Soup and Sandwich meal.
For a change, how about using Soft Tortilla
You will need 2 Tortilla
Sea Salt and Black Pepper
Sriracha Hot Sauce (Optional)
Heat a medium pan
Add splash Olive Oil
Place first Tortilla in the pan
Break and egg on top
spread it over the Tortilla
Season and if you like this sprinkle over some Sriracha Sauce
After a minute or 2
Turn onto a board
Cut into wedges
