Asian Style Tomato Soup!

This is a soup I really adore…. Really easy and, Ohhh so tasty!  Hehe!

Ingredients:

1/2 tbs vegetable oil

6 spring onions ….. chopped

3 cloves of garlic…. minced or chopped finely

2tsp finely grated ginger (can add more)

2 cans of chopped tomatoes

2 tsp sugar

1 litre chicken/veg stock, quite strong….stock cubes are fine

2 tbs fish sauce… Thai (don’t be scared to use this in dressings etc… it is a little smelly in bottle, but delicious)

1 or 2 eggs, lightly beaten

2 tbs chopped fresh coriander leaves

1 tbs lime or lemon juice

ground black pepper

Method:

1.  Heat oil in large pan, add garlic, ginger and spring onions, cook, stirring until soft.

2.  Add the tomatoes, sugar, stock and sauce…. Bring to boil, simmer uncovered for 20 minutes.

3.  Just before serving, pour beaten egg slowly into simmering soup, in a thin stream, stirring gently…. should be stringy. Stir in juice, pepper and coriander!

I’m hungry now!  I usually serve this with a bowl of rice on the side!

You can freeze this soup without the egg or coriander ….. Just defrost and when boiling, complete!

Enjoy!
