Tomato Soup


  • Tomato (5 - large)
  • Capsicum (1/2)
  • Celery (2 stalks)
  • Water (3 cups)
  • Ice (tray - optional)


  1. Cut the core out of the top of the tomatoes, and cut a shallow 'X' in the bottom of them (this will make peeling the skin off a lot easier).

  2. Prepare an ice bath by tipping an ice tray into a mixing bowl and adding a bit of room temperature water.

  3. Bring a pot of water to a boil. For each tomato:

    1. Place the tomato in the boiling water.

    2. When you can see the skin starting to come off (30s-1min) scoop the tomato out and dunk it in the ice bath.

    3. After a few seconds, take the tomato out of the ice bath and the skin should now be nice and easy to pull off.

    4. Discard the skin and cut the tomato into small pieces.

  4. Put the cut up tomatoes in a large pot, along with cut up capsicum and celery.

  5. Add 3 cups of water to the pot and bring to a simmer.

  6. Simmer for 20 minutes then enjoy with your favourite grainy bread!
