    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
    Set aside

    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
    Taste again
    If you want a smoother texture, work it through a mouli

    An egg sandwich completes this Soup and Sandwich meal.
    For a change, how about using Soft Tortilla
    You will need 2 Tortilla
    Olive oil
    1 egg
    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
    Put another Tortilla on top
    Push down
    After a minute or 2
    Turn over
    Cook another minute or two
    Turn onto a board
    Cut into wedges
