2 lbs Fresh Tomatoes (the varieties are unlimited)
¼ – ½ Cup Carrot
¼ Cup Onion
1 Stalk Celery (with leaves) or ¼ – ½ Cup Zucchini
1 Rounded Tablespoon Erythritol (or 1 Tablespoon Honey)
¼ Cup Red Bell Pepper or ¼ Cup Sweet Green Pepper
½ Cup Coconut Milk Powder
½ Cup Water (optional depending on how thick you like it)
2 tsp Organic Worcestershire Sauce
Pinch of Basil (or more if you like, 5 or 6 leaves of fresh)
Butter (around a quarter teaspoon) or 1 -2 tsp Butter Buds
Salt & Pepper to taste (I used a teaspoon of Celtic Sea Salt)
Mix and match your tomatoes. Use your favorites. Green striped are tangy. Brandywine are full of flavor. Black tomatoes have less acid. And cherry tomatoes and plumb tomatoes are tangy and flavorful. When it’s summer, you can play with this for weeks.
Using white, or green, or yellow, or orange tomatoes always makes the color of your soup interesting.
Chop up a few things, remove any blemishes from the tomatoes and the area around the stem. Add them all to your NutriBullet (or to a blender with a very “high” setting . . . some call it “extracting”).
The bulk of the tomatoes will not allow you to put all these ingredients in at the same time, so once your blender or NutriBullet is full, run it to blend up the ingredients to make room for the rest.
It’s best to peel the carrot. Yes, we know that there’s a lot of nutrition in the outer edge, but it’s also bitter.
I have the NutriBullet Rx (which actually cooks the soup) so I place the canister on top of the engine and let her rip. The first time it slows down is when you can press the Green button for a few seconds till it turns red. Then go answer your email; in about ten minutes it’s done and boy is it good.
If you can’t cook it in your NutriBullet or you’re using a blender, just warm it up on the stove.
Editor’s Note: when you cook with your NutriBullet, your blades burn out and have to be replace every 5 – 6 months. We’ve stopped cooking with it and we haven’t replaced the blades in two years. That’s something to think about.
Since I’ve been making this for a long time, this summer I wanted to try something new.
These are the things I’ve added to the recipe (after scouring the internet for variations).
And for the most flavorful tomatoes, try the tiny ones. There are quite a few of them on the market this time of year. They really make a great dish.
