1. How to simply cook a good tomato soup
For the simple tomato soup you need either canned tomatoes whole or in cubes, tomatoes that have passed through or fresh tomatoes. I like to use whole canned tomatoes because I like the tomato pieces in the soup and the soup gets more structure. The remaining ingredients for the tomato soup are olive oil, onions, garlic, white wine, salt, pepper, sugar. Optional thyme, oregano, marjoram or basil, an Italian herb mixture and tomato paste.
2. How to Cook fast Tomato Soup
My recipe for tomato soup is absolutely simple: dice onion finely and add one or two cloves of garlic. Never press the garlic, please, because it will become bitter. Garlic is also not chopped but finely cut with a sharp knife. Place the garlic and onion cubes in a large saucepan and sweat them colourless with two tablespoons of olive oil for 10 minutes. This serves to develop the taste, then add dry white wine or Prosecco and add the tomatoes. You can use strained tomatoes or tomatoes in pieces or chopped fresh tomatoes.
Tomato soup tastes good with fresh tomatoes and canned tomatoes, even star chef Johann Lafer recommends the use of canned tomatoes.
Let the tomato soup simmer at medium temperature for 15 minutes, season with salt, pepper and a little sugar. Mix the soup shortly before serving and season with thyme, oregano, marjoram, basil or Italian herb mixture.
3. Cook Tomato Soup yourself, some Chef Tips
You can caramelise the onions and garlic with a little sugar shortly before adding the white wine. This gives the soup more flavour later on. Let the tomato soup simmer for about 20 minutes, so that the taste can develop wonderfully. Be careful with the tomato paste, it adds a strong tomato taste to the soup, but it takes away the freshness and lightness of the soup.
