What is Tomato Soup?

This Creamy and Healthy Soup was first mentioned in 1857 by Eliza Leslie in her New Cookery Book. It was later popularised in 1897 by Joseph A. Campbell's recipe. Tomato soup can be said to be of Spanish origin. It can be served hot or cold, and traditionally the cold version is called Gazpacho, which originated from southern spain. The restaurant style tomato soups that were all used to are made from whole tomatoes as their prime ingredient. They are either thickened with a roux made with flour and butter or with the tomato pulp and enriched with cream and butter.

    Expert Tips

    1) Use the most red and pulpy tomatoes, as they give a better result.

    2) Do not over cook the tomatoes, as they might lose their colour.

    3) You can reduce the amount of butter or cream in the soup, but it would affect the flavour.
