A ramble and a soup – Simple Tomato Soup With Mint And Crispy Bacon
Of course there are wonderful food blogs where you feel at home and you can feel the honesty of the blogger, the passion for food and for blogging but on the whole, the food blogging community has changed. Lately I have started to follow smaller food blogs because I feel that I need to meet that passion again and it is really nice, I am not a good commenter but I try to leave some comments now and then because I know how much your comments mean to me, they are fundamental but I also understand that it is boring to leave comments here because I am such a louse at answering and commenting back but I love every single comment I get, you can be sure of that. End of ramble.
SIMPLE TOMATO SOUP WITH MINT AND CRISPY BACON
1 can of 400 g/ 14 ounce tomatoes (or 500g/ 1,1 lb fresh tomatoes)
2 sticks of celery, chopped
250 ml/ 1 cup light stock or water
1-2 tsp dried mint or 5-10 fresh mint leaves, it depends on how big the leaves are
bacon slices cut into pieces
extra-virgin olive oil
Cook the celery in a little olive oil for a few minutes before you add tomatoes, mint and stock. Simmer for 10 minutes and then blend the soup in a mixer until smooth.
Fry the bacon and top the soup with it. It is good both warm and cold.
