It was a bit dreary and raw this morning. Grey and damp with a blustery wind. A good day to make soup. Hard frost is predicted for tonight so there would be lots to do to prepare. And there is nothing like a nice bowl of soup after working out in the cold and damp.
One of my favorite soup recipes is from the book Diet for a Small Planet. I have been making it for years. It is called “Hearty Tomato Soup (like Campbell’s never dreamed of).
It is so easy to make soup I wonder why people buy it in cans. And like most things, homemade is SO much better. This soup calls for simple ingredients that you probably have on hand.
Put a little oil in the pan, add some garlic and onions.
Add carrots and celery.
Then add a couple of tablespoons of whole wheat flour.
Stir in a can of crushed tomatoes and some herbs.
And add some cooked brown rice. Stir and let simmer for a few hours.
Pour in some milk and a bit of butter, stir and heat through.
You can purée it or not. Either way it is delicious!
