    Tomato Soup

    • 3 lbs ripe tomatoes
    • 1 sweet onion, such as Vidalia, cut into 1-inch pieces (about 4 oz)
    • 2 large garlic cloves
    • 1/4 jalapeno pepper, seeded & cut into 1/2-inch pieces (or less depending on your tolerance)
    • 3/4 teaspoon salt
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1/4 teaspoon Tabasco sauce (or less if desired)

    Spinach Coulis

    • 3 cups loosely packed spinach leaves
    • 1/4 cup oil (a mixture of canola & olive oil)
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 cup water


    1. 1
      For the tomato soup:.
    2. 2
      Cut the tomatoes into 2- to 3-inch chunks. Finely puree the tomatoes, onion, garlic, jalapeno, salt, and olive oil in a blender or food processor. Push the puree through a food mill fitted with the fine screen, then add enough Tabasco to the soup to suit your taste. (You should have about 6 cups of soup.) Refrigerate until cool.
    3. 3
      For the spinach coulis:.
    4. 4
      Pick out and discard any damaged leaves and seal the leaves in a plastic bag. Place the bag in a microwave onion and microwave the spinach on high for 1 1/2 minutes.
    5. 5
      Transfer the spinach to a blender. Add the oil, salt, and water and process for about 1 minute, stopping the machine once or twice to push any pieces of spinach clinging to the sides down into the mixture. When it's smooth, transfer the spinach puree to a bottle or jar, cover tightly, and refrigerate.
    6. 6
      To serve, ladle out about 1 1/2 cups soup per person. Garnish each bowl with 1 to 2 tablespoons of spinach coulis.
    7. 7
      Note: The spinach coulis can be made up to a week ahead and refrigerated.

      Made this soup exactly as written and it is AMAZING! Like taking a bite out of a wonderful fresh tomato.

      I made some changes to this recipe which probably explains the end result. I used canned tomatoes instead of fresh tomatoes and omitted the Tabasco sauce. I found the flavor to be not to my liking. It was too hot so I would use less jalapeno pepper if making this again and would definitely use fresh, vine-ripened tomatoes. Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
