CARROT & TOMATO SOUP


This is a very simple and healthy soup with no cream or thickener added to it. Just salt, a pinch of freshly ground black pepper and dry herbs bring out the flavour. I have served it with healthy quinoa sticks bought from a store.

Ingredients:
Carrots ...    1 big or 2 small
Tomatoes ... 2  or 3 (depending on the size)
Salt .. to taste
Dry herbs like oregano and basil
Crushed black pepper

Method:
1. Clean and scrape the carrot and cut onto pieces.
2. Wash the tomatoes and cut them.
3. Pressure cook them with 2-3 cups of water. You can also cook simmering them in a pan... it takes longer.
4. Blend them using a hand blender or in a mixie.
5. Strain the soup adding a little water.
6. Bring it to a boil and add salt and dry herbs. Keep the consistency according to your preference.
7. Sprinkle freshly ground black pepper and serve.
