Fresh Tomato Soup

Serves 8  |  Easy

Fresh Tomato Soup is my favourite soup. Try it out this Ramadan and have your family enjoy its refreshing effect.
You can purchase DK bouquet garni used in this recipe simply by contacting us and placing an order.

You Need
1/3 cup onions, finely chopped
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
2 tbsp butter
800g peeled tomatoes
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 small DK bouquet garni (or you can substitute with your own bouquet garni)
Salt & black pepper to taste
100g long grain rice
1.5 ltr chicken or vegetable broth
fresh basil leaves or fresh parsley
garlic croutons

In a large heavy pot sweat onions in butter, then add peeled tomatoes, crushed garlic & DK Bouquet Garni, salt & black pepper. Cook gently for 20 minutes on medium-low heat. Add rice and stir to mix. Add broth, stir to combine all ingredients; cover and cook for 20 minutes more. Remove Bouquet Garni.

Reduce soup to a purée in a blender, then return to pot and whisk 1/4 cup butter chopped into small pieces till incorporated. Serve hot sprinkled with fresh basil or parsley shifonades and some garlic croutons.
