The Coombe Farm Vegetable patch, supervised by Sally, is getting bigger and better every year. At the moment we are enjoying a glut of tomatoes. We’ve a variety of yellow and red, small and large. They taste fantastic, we’ve been eating lots of sunny tomato salads and tomato soup.
Farmer Jez is a great cook. He is still trying to improve it, but this is the recipe for his best ever tomato soup so far.
Tomatoes, Celery, Red Onions, Peppers, Garlic, Chillis (optional), Green Herbs, Olive Oil
Peel onions and garlic and then roughly chop everything. Put it all into a baking tray, add salt and pepper, and cover with a generous amount of olive oil. Roast it in the oven for half an hour. Then pour the whole lot into a big saucepan and blend it, adding water and herbs to taste. Jez added fresh basil and thyme. Bingo.
Don’t then do what Farmer Jez did, which was serve the soup, then leave the stove on and slowly burn the remaining soup…
