Tomato Soup Recipe with Lemongrass

By Naturally Savvy Recipes

Full of flavor, vibrantly colored tomatoes are really good for you. They are an excellent source of vitamin C, and are rich in lycopene. This phytonutrient is the pigment that gives certain fruits their red color, and is a potent antioxidant in this tomato soup recipe. 

Ingredients:

6 medium ripe tomatoes, chopped
1 baking potato, chopped
1 medium onion, peeled and chopped
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
2 stalks lemongrass, bulbous ends lightly mashed
1 small red chili, deseeded and finely chopped
1 tbsp tomato purée
2 tbsp Maison Orphée organic olive oil
½ teaspoon cumin seeds
15 dried curry leaves
4 cups water
salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste
