Luscious tomato and capsicum soup

Another recipe from Jamie Oliver's "Happy Days with the Naked Chef" inspired by a tray of bought tomatoes and some of our own from the garden. Two capsicums are sauteed with lots of garlic. All the tomatoes are pureed in a food processor then added to the pan along with vegetable stock and a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar. Cooked until rich and thick... and because we had some cream leftover from a dinner party, I added that in for a special treat. It looks very creamy in the picture, and indeed it was amazingly flavourful, served with nice bread and a salad. The recipe suggested putting pesto on top as well, but with the cream that seemed like too much.

Looks so Yummy!

Do you remember when I made you homemade tomato soup in 1993? Bill and I were living in Fall Creek and I think we were watching Melrose Place that night :-P
