Hey /ck/, any tips/recipes for tomato soup?
All the recipes I find online say to use canned tomatoes, but I hate how much salt is in that shit.
san marzano tomatoes in tomato puree
strain (if you wish)
The best tomato soup is really simple in my experience. I know mirepoix is common, but I can't stand the taste of carrot and celery in tomato soup. I sometimes don't even add the onion.
I've never encountered overly salty canned tomatoes. I always have to add more salt to them.
It was on the first search page for "tomato soup recipe" at duckduckgo. You just have to not bother looking at the usual dud sites.
I know one of the ingredients is a splash of tomato puree, but you can just make that yourself.
good base recipe.
straining is to fancy for me. just get an industry sized blender. for the fancy shit do a consomme.
you can skip the cream, use more olive oil and maybe change thyme with oregano or add it to the soup.
more economical option is to add some water and tomato paste + more salt, but that`s not necessary in a private setting.
>Anyone else add sodium bicarbonate to their tomato soup to lower the acidity and ph?
Lowering the ph is the same as raising the acidity. Raising the ph makes something more alkaline.
But it doesn't work like you think with tomato sauce/soup. Cooking a tomato until it doesn't taste acidic anymore isn't about actually changing the ph, it's about bringing out enough sweetness to balance the acidity.
