Instruction

The potato soup tastes delicious, served with pesto. The recipe for Pesto alla Genovese shows you how to prepare it step by step.

Prepare pesto

Prepare the basil pesto and chill.

I always prepare a larger amount of pesto and eat the pesto with different dishes in the coming days.

This is practical and enriches everyday life immensely.

You can find the instructions for making pesto yourself elsewhere in my food blog.

Tomatoes in a shaker
Tomatoes with tomato seeds in a blender jar.

Prepare soup

Quarter the tomatoes and place in a bowl.

Roughly mix with salt, pepper, sugar, olive oil and a little cayenne pepper with the hand blender and set aside.

-> Tip: I like to let the tomatoes stand for 15 minutes so that the flavor can develop.

Dice the shallot
Halve the shallot and cut into fine cubes.

Shallots

Finely dice the peeled shallots and garlic.

When I can get it, I use young, green garlic, which has a finer and lighter aroma than the adult garlic.

Set up a saucepan and heat two tablespoons of olive oil.

Sweat onion cubes
Sauté the diced onions

Prepare Starter

Sauté the diced shallots and diced garlic in the saucepan for 10 minutes until translucent.

Then lightly caramelize with a little sugar and deglaze with white wine.

Cook Soup

Add the prepared tomatoes and bring to the boil.

Let the soup simmer for 20-25 minutes. In my experience, this is the best way for the taste of the soup to develop.

If you have leftover tomato stalks, then cook them in the soup, which complements the fine aroma of the soup.

Season the tomato soup with salt, pepper and sugar.

–> Insider tip: use a little soy sauce, better naturally brewed tamari, to taste. This is the taste booster of star chefs!

Crunchy basil, the leaves taste delicious.
Crispy fried basil leaves.

Herb chips

Heat sunflower oil in a second pan and fry the basil leaves briefly, crispy.

Place the crispy basil leaves on a plate lined with paper towels and season with salt.

Cut smoked tofu
Frying the tofu in strips would be an option instead of fish. I like the smoked tofu, brings an exciting taste to the soup!

Tofu variant

Would you like to prepare this dish #withoutanimal?

Then I recommend tofu.

You can fry tofu slices briefly or fry tofu strips a little more crispy.

–> Another option would be tofu with sesame .

There are already detailed instructions for this.

Monkfish fillet
Prepared ready-to-cook monkfish fillets.

Prepare monkfish

Unwrap the monkfish fillets, wash under cold running water and prepare for filleting.

Raised monkfish fillets
Raised monkfish fillets

Monkfish fillets

Deglaze the monkfish fillet from the middle bone and cut the fillet pieces into cubes.

–> For a low-carb dish you can buy more monkfish and increase the amount of fish.

Fry monkfish
Monkfish fillet pieces frying in a pan.

Roast monkfish

Fry the fillet pieces in the pan with sunflower oil over high heat.

-> You can use the oil from the preparation of the basil chips.

–> Gently season the monkfish with salt and pepper.

–> A short flambé with some cognac would be a great option!

–> Prepare immediately for serving.

–> Put in the fried pieces of fish

–> Decorate with basil chips in the middle

Serve quickly 🙂 Wish you a good appetite!

For this great soup you need sun-ripened and fantastically fragrant, ripe tomatoes or tomatoes .

The remaining ingredients are olive oil and some butter , shallots , garlic , white wine , salt , pepper , cayenne pepper and sugar .

Monkfish is an expensive fish, but it tastes great, there is a separate post for making the pesto yourself .

For the vegetarian version, replace the monkfish with smoked tofu!

Cut smoked tofu
Frying the tofu in strips would be an option instead of fish. I like the smoked tofu, brings an exciting taste to the soup!

Deep fried basil leaves.
Crispy fried basil leaves are the highlight topping.

The potato soup tastes delicious, served with pesto. The recipe for Pesto alla Genovese shows you how to prepare it step by step.

I cook the gourmet version of the tomato soup the other way around:

fresh tomatoes
You can use fresh tomatoes or canned tomatoes for tomato soup.

Season the soup later with salt, pepper and a little sugar . Cayenne pepper is an additional option for a fine spiciness.

Freshly prepared tomato soup is the absolute highlight!

Says chef Thomas Sixt

Poach fish in soup:

Boil a ladle of the finished soup with the same amount of water in a small saucepan.

Place the prepared bite-sized monkfish pieces in the boiling liquid and remove the pot from the heat.

Serve the soup, refine each bowl of soup with a tablespoon of pesto. Add pieces of poached monkfish and serve quickly.

This variant should give you another idea of the preparation. In the recipe I roast the monkfish.
