Pimp your beans!
This is a tomato soup recipe based on a Syn free one i tried many years ago, when I was still concerned with the size of my ass. As in every kitchen, things get tweaked, until you reach your ureka recipe!
This version has a little dance in your mouth, not a waltz and not a stomp. A happy jig.
Sweet and sour combine for a refreshing zingy but warming soup.
You need ( serves 4 generous bowls)
Stick blender/jug blender or processor
1 tsp garlic paste or a clove.
2 tins of tomatoes ( chopped or plum- your choice)
Tin of baked beans
Tin of carrots
2 tbsp Lime Pickle
1 tsp sugar
Salt + pepper to taste
Blend EVERYTHING bar the salt and pepper. Put it in a pan on a medium heat, keep stirring until it reaches a rolling boil, turn down to low and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
Taste- add salt and pepper to your preference. Serve. Nothing fancy about the recipe or my presentation, but I have always maintained….it is not about that!
