Speedy Tomato and Pepper Soup




A new variation for the good old tomato soup, done in a microwave and that too with few ingredients. A healthy & nutrituous soup which can be served with sandwiches and green salads.

I prepared this soup keeping in mind my son, who do not like to have soup other than chicken soup (cream of chicken, sweet corn chicken soup to name a few). I thanked my lucky stars, when on the way to Nainital he tasted tomato soup for the first time and liked it tremendously.

So now my kid has 2 soups in his menu, chicken soup and tomato soup. I did not use black pepper when I made the soup initially for him. You can always add the freshly ground black pepper at the end (as per taste).

Ingredients:

  • 250 gms tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 small onions, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh cream, whipped
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • 2 tsp butter
  • 4 cups water
  • salt (to taste)
  • freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
  • fried bread croutons, for garnishing
Procedure:

  1. Dissolve cornflour in 1/2 cup water and keep aside.
  2. In a microwave safe bowl, microwave 1 cup of butter at 100% power for 30 secs.
  3. Add chopped garlic, onions, tomatoes, salt and 1/2 cup water. Microwave covered at 100% power for 5-6 mins. Let it cool in the microwave for 5 mins.
  4. Blend in a blender, strain to form a smooth tomato puree.
  5. Take another microwave safe bowl, add the tomato puree, 3 cups water and cornflour mixture and mix well. Microwave at 100% power for 4 mins. Stir in between.
  6. Remove from microwave. Stir in the whipped cream.
  7. Sprinkle freshly ground black pepper. Garnish with fried bread croutons and serve hot.
