ASIAN INSPIRED TOMATO SOUP FOR SUNDAY NIGHT

Tonight we make soup.
Or; I make, you watch.

You need:
Red lentils, (peeled) cherry tomatoes, canned crushed tomatoes, coconut milk and chili sauce.

(...bonus pic of cat in between, watching the pot while cooking...)

And to make a long story short; you get:


Not that the story is that long if written out either - just boil the ingredients in mentioned order, first the lentils, then the cherry tomatoes etc. You can also go for just crushed the tomatoes if you want. Spice with some chili sauce, soy sauce, garlic and fresh coriander (if your lucky enough to have some at home -I didn't have any today) and whatever you feel like, a drop of lemon perhaps.
Done! If you want to pimp it up add shrimps, tofu or chopped vegetables, but the soup works fine just like that.

Tällä ei ole mitään tekemistä sopan kanssa vaan kissan. Minun pieni poika suorastaan jumaloisi tuota kissaasi. Se kun on musta ja musta kissa on 3,5 vuotiaan aivoituksissa sama kuin Mystinen ja Mahtava TaikaKissa.

Hauskaa pääsiäistä.

That sounds delicious. It was kind of a revelation for us the first time we had tomato soup with coconut milk in it. Now we always make it that way. It's also very good even with just garlic, basil and coconut milk, but it sounds great with the lentils too. We'll have to try that soon, it's been raining constantly for a month here, so it's good weather for soup :)

Melancholic Optimist : I know, I tomato soup with coconut milk the first time sort of by accident s´by just making dinner of what I could find in the cupboard and both Eddi and I went "wow". It's pretty much the only tomato soup I make nowadays too :) I

nham!!! I wonder if it'll work with green lentils... I have all the ingredients at home but the red lentils! I don't see much of a difference, do you?

the freelancer's fashionblog said...

Stephanie : Well you should try! I think it will taste quite different but it might be really really good too, I often make a green lentil soup with tomato too so the coconut milk might compliment really well. Let me know how it turned out if you made it :)

Wow. That sounds positively delicious. I love lentils so I should really give this a try.

Have a great weekend, my dear.
