People that know me would never imagine that this is, a true story. Nothing big, nothing huge, probably nothing out of the ordinary for most people, but for me, hmm, “she did that”?
Today, I made a small pot of homemade “tomato, rice, broccoli” soup. And it was perfect. And the unusual part for me, I did this little stunt without a recipe, and without even planning it.
I put the pasta in the pot and started to cook it. And halfway through I realized that I could make a soup by just adding tomato paste to the water near the end of the cooking. And yes, instead of just emptying the water, the filtered water that I used to cook the soup became part of the soup. Just four ingredients, and a small covered pot, and one beautiful result of homemade soup –without the spices. That’s right. I love food without the fancy spices. So the pure tomato paste, organic with no artificial additives made a great base for the homemade soup.
The only thing that would have made this perfect was some shavings from the Unexpected Cheddar cheese, but I ran out of that last week.
It was delicious! And it was so perfect for today’s cold day.
What is your favorite soup and how do you make it?
