DIRECTIONS

  • Slice tomatoes, onion and carrot.
  • Melt butter in a medium size saucepan.
  • Add the onion and carrot, cover, and allow to soften for 5-6 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat, stir in the plain flour, add tomatoes, stock or water, bay leaf, sugar, mace or nutmeg and seasoning.
  • Stir until boiling, simmer for 20-30 minutes.
  • Rub soup through sieve, pour back into rinsed saucepan, and reheat.
  • Adjust seasoning, and thicken slightly if necessary with a teaspoon or more of arrowroot blended with a tablespoon of cold water.
  • Reboil to cook the arrowroot if used to thicken the soup.
  • Add cream if used.
  • If cream is added do not boil the soup.
  • If required, a teaspoon of tomato paste may be added to the tomato soup for extra colour and flavour.
  • Serve with crusty bread, the kind that you have to break apart with your hands.
  • Feel free to dip your chunks of bread into the soup.
