The Fresher the Tomato, the Better the Soup

The humble tomato, first cultivated by the Incas and Aztecs and brought to Europe in the sixteenth century, is now grown in mass quantities around the world. In fact, the tomato is the world’s most popular fruit, with more than 60 million tons produced every year.

Tomatoes are so much more than a simple salad ingredient. What would a pizza or a pasta recipe be without a tomato sauce? Even the Great British favourite, baked beans, require a hefty serving of tomato sauce to make them what they are. But no tomato based food is quite as well-loved as the soul-warming classic, tomato soup.

The secret to creating a truly delicious tomato soup recipe is picking the freshest, highest quality tomatoes you can find. Colour and flavour tend to be linked in all fruit and vegetables, so the rosiest red tomatoes will often be the most flavourful as well. Tomatoes are seasonal fruit, and since the height of the season begins in early autumn, you're just in time to make a delicious warm bowl to ease you into the blustery evenings.

Not all tomato soup recipes were created equal, so make sure you pick one which brings out the true sweetness of the tomatoes with complementary flavours such as chopped onions and garlic or fresh basil. Try sprinkling some sunflower seeds on top for garnish, adding a dash of tobasco, or following Waitrose's tomato soup recipe by adding crispy bacon strips or torn parma ham.

Tomato soup is a winter favourite for the whole family. Why not prepare the Waitrose tomato soup recipe and impress everyone with this simple dish. The dish is also perfect for when you’re feeling poorly and under the weather. It’s just want the doctor ordered and will have you felling better in no time.

To make the delicious Waitrose version all you need to pick up includes the following:

A few packs of really good vine tomatoes which you then need to quarter, 2 red onions, which then need thinly sliced, 4 garlic cloves which need chopped1 tbsp olive oil, 6 rashers of excellent quality smoked bacon, 2 small organic chicken stock cubes and finally 4 tea spoons of balsamic vinegar. The flavors within is soup are immense and it will most definitely become a family favourite for many years and will be perfect to enjoy at any time of the year. Just remember, in the tomato soup recipe, the fresher the tomato the better the soup.
