1. Italian Tomato Soup

You need fresh, ripe and tasty tomatoes for the Italian tomato soup. Further ingredients are olive oil, shallots, garlic, white wine, salt, pepper, sugar. Optional herbs such as thyme, oregano, marjoram or basil, an Italian herb mixture and tomato paste. As a special supplement some gin, soy sauce or Worcestershiresauce.

The Preparation Step by Step:

Put the tomatoes in an ovenproof bowl or a roaster, marinate the tomatoes in a little olive oil, season with salt, pepper and sugar.

Marinate the tomatoes and put them in the oven. 30 minutes at 190°C hot air is ideal and sufficient.

In the meantime, sauté the shallots and garlic cubes in a pan with olive oil for 20 minutes, caramelize lightly with a little sugar, then deglaze with white wine and simmer lightly.

The so far braised tomatoes are now added to the soup, try the resulting stock beforehand – delicious!

Next add the braised tomatoes to the soup and bring to the boil. Let the soup simmer for 25 minutes, then mix up the soup. Whether you pass the soup through a sieve or not is a matter of taste. Season the soup to taste, then arrange it and refine it with side dishes such as bread cubes, parmesan or whipped cream.

2. This goes well with Italian Tomato Soup

Here are some ingredients that go very well with tomato soup:

Crispy bread cubes:
Cut white bread or brown bread into slices and 1 cm large cubes and fry in butter and olive oil in a pan. Season to taste with salt, pepper, thyme and garlic. Add these crispy bread cubes to the soup.

Basil chips:
Fry a few leaves of basil in hot vegetable oil. Be careful, the fat splashes, so put the lid on at the beginning. Place the fried basil leaves on a paper towel and season with salt. Place the basil leaves decoratively on the soup shortly before serving.

Grated cheese or cheese cubes:
A light sheep’s cheese, cut into cubes or grated hard cheese such as Parmesan, Pecorino, mountain cheese goes well with tomato soup.

Fresh herbs:
Chervil, marjoram, oregano, thyme, parsley, wild garlic, basil, lovage… dare yourself and try out new herbs with tomato soup.

  • 500 g tomatoes in whole Tip: Use San Marzano tomatoes
  • 2 tbs oliv oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 pinch pepper
  • 1 tsp brown cane sugar
  • 4 pc shallots finely diced or yellow onions
  • 1-2 pc clove of garlic or young, green garlic
  • 120 ml dry white wine or prosecco
  • 1 pinch thyme or oregano or basil
  • 2 slices white bread
  • 2-4 tbs cream
  • some herbs basil, thyme, marjoram, oregano
  • Place the tomatoes in a bowl or roaster, marinate with olive oil, salt, pepper and some sugar and bake at 190°C hot air for 30 minutes in the oven. I like to use raw cane sugar, which has a more interesting taste than white industrial sugar.
  • Cut the shallots and garlic in half, peel and dice finely. I use young garlic as far as available, because it has a finer aroma. Place a pot on top and heat two tablespoons of olive oil.
  • Sweat the shallots and garlic cubes in a pot for 10 minutes until colourless and glassy. Optionally add a little sugar and caramelise the tomato soup slightly.
  • Deglaze with the white wine, I like to use Prosecco, add the prepared tomatoes and the resulting stock and bring to the boil. Let the tomato-soup mixture simmer for 15 - 25 minutes. This is the best way to develop the flavour of the soup. Note: If you have any tomato stalks left, boil them in the soup, which adds to the fine aroma of the soup.
  • Season the tomato soup with salt, pepper, sugar and herbs to taste and serve.
  • You can add freshly grated Parmesan or Pecorino, basil, marjoram, oregano and freshly roasted bread croutons to the soup. Lightly whip the cream, then pour onto the soup with a spoon or beak cup.
