"Using an immersion blender, puree the soup until nearly smooth." -- Amanda Matthews
1 lb. chopped tomatoes
2 Tbl. olive oil
6 c. vegetable broth
1 finely chopped onion
1 finely chopped garlic clove
1 finely chopped chili pepper
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. paprika
lime juice for seasoning
salt and pepper to taste
Add oil in large stockpot, add garlic & onions and cook for 5 mins. until soft. Add tomatoes and chili pepper and cook for 10 mins., covered. Pour in the stock, add the paprika and chili powder and cook for another 5 mins. Using an immersion blender, puree the soup until nearly smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste. Squeeze fresh lime juice on top prior to serving.
I liked that the cookbook is well organized alphabetically. The vegetable soups such as Cauliflower Cream, Lemon Asparagus, Butternut Squash and Moroccan Tomato are good. The Mayan Chicken Soup sounds very inviting but I haven't tried it yet. Pretty much the proportion sizes are correct. My only feedback is that pictures added would be a real warm addition to the book. Everyone likes soup, so this is a good choice!

Do you have a favorite soup recipe? I like homemade Tomato soup, any type of Italian and Butternut Squash. My mom always made a great lemon and rice soup... yum!
I just love tree silhouettes, especially palm and avocado trees!
This particular winter sunset reminds me of tomato soup!
It always amazes me how quickly the sky changes. I can't get over our beautiful weather!
