Honeyed Tomato Soup

Honeyed Tomato Soup 
This delicious Tomato Soup is one that I first shared with you back in 2011.  It is also one of the recipes which will be included in my new book A Year In The English Kitchen, which is coming out in January.  This new book reads a bit like a diary, and contains not only recipes but some of my seasonal writings and yes, even crafts, on a month by month basis.

I wanted to update the photos a bit for the cook, so had the opportunity to cook it again last week and was reminded once again of how very delicious it was, and so I thought I would tempt your palate and interest a bit and share it with you again!

Just a tiny glimpse of all the lovely things you have to look forward in the new book. It was originally supposed to be published in November of this year, but they got behind on everything and so there has been a slight delay.  Hopefully it won't harm anything in the long run.  I am pretty proud of it.

This is a lovely soup, and that is the same with every recipe I have included in the new book. Each one is a delicious, tried and true favorite of mine.  I adore tomato soups.  They spell comfort like no other soup, save chicken noodle, and this version is especially nice.

In my original post I accompanied it with cheddar and Onion Marmalade Panini, which were mighty tasty also.  This time I just accompanied it with some cheese and bacon open faced toasties.

They were very simple to make.  I simply cut out snowflake shapes from buttered slices of sour dough bread, and then lightly toasted them on both sides under a hot grill/broiler.  Then I piled each one with a mix of grated strong cheddar cheese and chopped partially cooked bacon before sliding under the grill again just to melt the cheese and finish cooking the bacon.

Totally scrumptious and something you needn't feel too guilty about indulging in as the soup is very low in fat and calories.  Unbelievable you say?

Rich and Herby with just a hint of sweet . . . your guests will wonder what your secret is. It tastes like it should have a bazillion calories in it, but guess what?? THERE IS HARDLY ANY FAT! It's just tomatoes, herbs, low fat skimmed evaporated milk. Yes, that incredible richness comes from tinned skimmed evaporated milk!  And no, you cannot tell in the very least that it contains tinned milk.

I like the little drizzle of tinned milk on the top that pretties it up even more.

I like to run a toothpick through it to make a squiggly design.  It would be nice if I could have figured out how to do a heart, but alas . . .  I could not.  Heart or not, it is delicious all the same!

Honeyed Tomato Soup

prep time: 10 minscook time: 20 minstotal time: 30 minsA deliciously simple tomato soup, slightly sweetened with honey.  I find the honey helps the tomatoes from being too acidic.  It just tastes wonderful.  Who would guess that is is low in fat!


2 (390g) tetra packs of chopped Italian tomatoes
with onions and garlic (about 4 cups)
2 ribs of celery chopped
splash of white wine
1/2 tsp dried sage
1/2 tsp dried rosemary
2 TBS runny honey
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
240ml of skimmed evaporated tinned milk (1 cup)
240ml of 2% milk (1 cup)


Place the tomatoes, celery, white wine, sage and rosemary into a
saucepan.  Bring to the boil.  Immediately reduce the heat to a low
simmer.  Stir in the honey and season to taste with some salt and black
pepper.  Simmer for about 15 minutes, until the celery is soft.  Blitz
until smooth with a stick blender if you have it, or very carefully in a
 regular blender.  Alternately you can put it through a moulee.  Return
to the heat.  Whisk in most of the tinned milk, reserving a bit for a
garnishing.  Whisk in the milk.  Heat through.  Ladle out into 4 heated
soup bowls.  Drizzle a bit of the reserved tinned milk on top and drag
through it with a toothpick to make a lovely swirl.Created using The Recipes Generator
Honeyed Tomato Soup 
Note, if you can't find tomatoes with onions and garlic added, just saute one large onion, minced along with a few cloves of garlic, peeled and minced as well. You can do this in a bit of stock to save on fat and calories, or in the microwave to save on even more.  However you choose to do it, you are in for a real treat. This simple soup is fabulous and makes a beautiful light lunch!  Bon appetit!
