growing tomatoes

This page features some of the tomato recipes that I like, at the moment I mainly have tomato soups as this is what most people are searching the internet for recipes, however I will be adding more tomato meal ideas in the near future.
Fresh Tomato Soup Recipe
  • 8 Large tomatoes
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 3 red onion
  • 2 sticks celery
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 rasher bacon ( optional )
  • Salt, pepper, virgin olive oil
Dice everything up finely. Heat oil in a thick bottomed pan, add onion, garlic, carrot, celery and bacon, cook until it just starts to color, then add the tomatoes and bay leaf and cook for 15 minutes, puree in a blender and strain, add salt, pepper and a little olive oil to taste. If its to thick you can add a little water, tomato juice or stock to adjust.

Cream Of Tomato And Basil Soup

Basic fresh tomato soup recipe above but mix thru 1 cup of finely chopped basic leaves and 1 cup of cream, leave to cool for three hours as this allows the basil flavor to penetrate the soup then reheat and serve.

Tomato And Bacon Soup

Basic fresh tomato soup but use 6 rashers of bacon when making the soup, finely dice another 4 rashers and fry off in a separate pan until they are crisp, drain on a paper towel and use to garnish the soup.
