Wholesome Tomato soup

Once in a while I feel like having just soup for dinner but invariably at midnight hunger strikes and at that time I wish I had cooked something to eat too. So this time around I made a trio of wholesome tomato soup, garlicky cheesy potatoes and a veggie sandwich. Needless to say, it was a bit too much and the sandwich was carried forward to breakfast the next day.

Let me start with the soup first, combination of fresh, frozen and canned ingredients, the result – appetizing.

Butter – half a spoon
Frozen mixed vegetables – one cup
(corn, carrots, beans, peas)
Broccoli florets – half a cup
Diced Zucchini – half a cup
Italian seasoning – one tsp
Pinch of cinnamon powder
One bay leaf
Small can of tomato sauce
Three cups of water
Salt and pepper

Heat butter and add the frozen vegetables and bay leaf. Cook for a couple of minutes and add the remaining vegetables. Add salt and pepper and mix well. Add water and all other ingredients except tomato sauce. Put the lid on and let everything cook together for 15 minutes. Add tomato sauce and cook for another 15 minutes or so. Sprinkle some pepper right before serving.

Go ahead and make a pot full of this one, tastes even better the next day. Till then, food and more food…
