I had this soup in one of the restaurants, that was the first time I saw orange floating in Tomato soup. The tangy-ness of the Orange and the flavor of Tomatoes blended so well. The soup was very tasty. So yesterday I had nothing but a carton of Tomato soup from ‘Trader Joe’s’ So thought I did spice this up a little and here is the outcome.
Time: 30 mins
1. 5 tomatoes ( you can use the carton of tomato soup too, then skip the part of making the soup itself)
2. 1 potato
3. cumin powder
4. 1 Tangerine (orange)
5. 4 Bay leaves
6. 1/2 tsp paprika
7. 1/2 tsp pepper
9. cilantro (optional)
10. 2 slices white bread (optional)
11. oil to fry
For Tomato Soup:
Peel and Boil the tomatoes in 1 cup water and chopped potatoes. Take out the potato and blend the tomatoes well. To skip all this you can use a carton of Tomato soup from any store.
Boil the soup, add Bay leaves, salt, pepper, paprika and cumin powder. After it starts boiling add chopped oranges ( slice the oranges into round wheel like and then cut them in to four pieces (quarters), add about 10 quarters). Boil for another 5 minutes. and its done.
Cut the bread in to small pieces, deep fry these until they are brown.
Add them into the soup. Garnish with some cilantro and orange slice.
