Potato and Tomato Soup with Sage
« on: March 03, 2010, 05:38:07 am »
This soup is amazing.   How can it be so much  better than the simple ingredients that comprise the recipe?   This recipe is from 'Love Soup',  by Anna Thomas. I have halved the recipe to fit the TMX.   It makes 4 generous serves, or 1 1/2 Lt.

1 red onion
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 teaspoon of salt
300g of peeled potato.
5 cloves of garlic
450g ripe tomatoes, roughly cut
1/2 cup of dry white wine ,  2 teaspoons of chicken stock powder.
1/8 cup of parsley
1 dessertspoon of fresh sage,  (or 1/2 dessertspoon of dried sage)
small sprig of fresh thyme
small sprig of rosemary
freshly ground black pepper

Chop onion and garlic (peeled) in TMX, scrape down sides, add oil and cook 5 mins., 100,  speed 2.
Add cubed potato and tomato to bowl,  with white wine and all the herbs and salt.
Pour water in hole in lid until it covers the vegetables by 2 to 3 cm.
Cook 30 mins, 90  to  100, speed 2 .
Place tea towell over lid and hold in place while you turn the speed from 2 to 9 and zap for 1 min.
Add black pepper just before serving.
Garnish with, a few drops of very good olive oil,or
              parsley,or
              pesto,or
              croutons.

JD - Made your soup today Chookie for tomorrow.  Tasted it though and it is very nice.  I did add 1 teaspoon concentrated veg stock and less fresh herbs just in case they were too strong for me.  Am not a great lover of rosemary in particular but the amount I used was obviously enough for my taste buds.

Thanks Chookie, I love soups that you can whizz up with ingredients you already have.  Soup weather is on it's way again.

Thanks Chookie,  I love sage and can't wait to give this a try.  Great recipe to use up all those super sweet tomatoes at the moment.

Trudy ,  the recipe had double the sage but I thought it was too much.   This recipe is cheap,  easy and tasty.

I have a large sage bush in my herb patch Chookie and it rarely gets used - just the odd leaf here and there so I am looking forward to making this soup when it becomes a little cooler. DH doesn't like tomato soup but the potato should dilute that taste a bit and I only have to tell him it is a taste test for one of the forum recipes and he will eat it.
