This honey and tomato soup is made with fresh tomatoes and a touch of sweet honey. Some lovely crunchy whole wheat croutons complete this lovely summery dish.
Summer is fast approaching. Of course that means that the days are getting warmer and sunnier. But for everyone with a veggie patch in their garden, it also means the growing season has started! We like vegetables here at the tiny Dutch kitchen. And vegetables come from your own garden, somehow always taste extra good.
If you think of summer produce, you can’t help but think of tomatoes. This is hardly surprising. After all, tomatoes do very well in summery dishes, like salads or salsas. Their versatility doesn’t end there of course, as they can also be used in loads of warm dishes as well. On top of all that, they’re very healthy and contain loads of vitamins.
The one down side of tomatoes, is that they can sometimes be a bit sour. Especially when you turn them into a soup, like I did with this recipe. I could have solved that by simply adding some sugar. But I felt that honey fitted the summery theme much better. There are only two tablespoons of honey in this recipe, because I don’t mind a little bit of acidity. If you have a really sweet tooth however, you can add as much honey as you like.
To dress this soup up a little bit, I added some croutons. Croutons are a great way of adding some texture to a soup. At the same time, they’re also a great way of using up any stale bread you happen to have laying around. Since we always eat whole wheat bread, that’s what I used in the recipe. You can use whatever bread you have on hand though. Your croutons will turn out just fine.
