Today we are having our great tomato soup for dinner. I talked about it before in a blogpost about het Pauwtje, the nice store in Delft full of cooking supplies. But then I did not write down the recipe. Now tried to translate it and I converted the quantities in pounds. I hope it went ok.

In this recepie you need a passevite (a sieve) . Mine is called ‘flotte lotte’ but I just found out that that is also the German translation. It is a nice stainless steal one and I only use it for the tomato soup. You can also use it for making marmalade, but that is not my hobby 😉

I will write down the recipe below, you should try it. It is very easy!

Great tomato soup recipe:

750 gr or 1650 lbs (Dutch) tomatoes (chopped)

30 gr or 66 lbs butter

1 carrot (big one) (chopped)

1 onion (chopped)

3 spoons of flour

1 liter of chicken stock

1 clove of garlic

2 leeks

4 white peppercorns

1 tea spoon salt

1 spoon of sugar

¼ liter cream

Mix carrot and onions, fry both, add the flour after a while. Add the chicken stock, garlic, leeks, peppercorns, salt, sugar and tomatoes.

Cook all of this for 1,5 hours. Get your passe-vite and pass the soup through it. Add the cream and more pepper and salt if you want. If you do not add the cream you can put the soup in the freezer for max. 3 months.
