There are times when I’m already hungry and then I start cooking. Result – a dish comes together in under 10 minutes. Ideally I’d pressure cook / boil the tomatoes, peel them and puree them to be made into a soup. But there is a time lag between the boiling and pureeing because I have to wait for the tomatoes to cool off. Unless ofcourse I want a red spray paint on my kitchen walls.
I took the reverse route here. Puree whole tomatoes, skin and all with a few cloves of garlic. And then turn it into soup.
Cooked tomatoes are high on lycopene and lycopene is good for you. It helps in preventing various cancers especially of the colon and prostate. More about lycopene – here.
