This is a simple soup recipe I go back to time and again and I have to simply quote the source as there’s no point me recreating what is a create recipe. You don’t even notice it is keto and I use it even when I’m off my diet. Highly recommend you give it a try..
- “300 grams Tomatoes You can also use tinned ones
- 50 grams Onion
- 10 grams garlic
- 300 ml Chicken stock
- 100 ml Fresh Cream (Heavy Whipping Cream)
- 50 grams Salted Butter
- 1/2 Tsp Black Pepper Powder
- 1/2 Tsp Smoked Paprika
- 1 Tsp Pumpkin Spice Mix You can also use ‘All Spice’ mix. Headbanger recommends this and in the UK it’s quite difficult to find but I did find this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0005XN9KK/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=melmosparkly-21&camp=1634&creative=6738&linkCode=as2&creativeASIN=B0005XN9KK&linkId=4fcc4933f8999b4e78c466d4d70f118d
- Fresh Basil for garnish
- Cheese for garnish
- Salt to Taste
Heat the butter in a heavy bottom saucepan and once it has melted add in the onions with a pinch of salt.
Cook the onions low and slow till they start to turn brown and caramelize.
Add in the garlic and cook till it starts to brown and then add in the tomatoes and cook for about 2 minutes.
Cover the pan with a lid and cook on a low heat for 5 minutes
After 5 minutes of cooking add in the pepper, paprika and pumpkin spice. Also add in about 100ml of chicken stock. If your stock has no salt then add salt as well.
Cover with a lid and cook for about 10 minutes till the tomatoes are completely soft. Keep opening the lid every 2-3 minutes and stirring to ensure nothing sticks.
Once it’s cooked and tender let it cool. Then blend the mixture in a food processor or using an immersion blender. Add more stock if needed to make it easier to blend.
Strain the mixture to get a silky smooth soup. Add more stock if the soup is too thick.
Add heavy whipping cream to the soup and warm it up.
Finish with fresh pepper, a bit of cheese and fresh chopped basil.”
