Plump, fresh, fragrant home-grown garden tomatoes…
These remind me again of my dear friend Midge rushing into our kitchen one hot Brisbane summer, writing down this recipe on an old envelope & telling me I just had to make it …it was SO simple & SO delicious!
Chilled Tomato Soup
It certainly is…& I’ve kept her scrappy memo tucked away with many of those favourite old recipes when I was learning how to cook for a family & friends.
It reminds me too of the classic vegetarian Spanish Gazpacho-such a beautiful summer soup which I also made then … but I’ll make this old one of Carrier’s recipes remembering Midge that summer.
Chunked tomatoes,chopped cucumber and 1/4 red onion, lemon rind & juice.
chopped ham & cream
All this can be whizzed together in a flash in a blender. Stir in cream if preferred at end & check seasonings.
