Is it a soup?  Is it a sauce?  No it is a Souper Sauce!  O.K. so occasionally I like to play with words.  So let’s make it fun.  Why not.  Laugh, create, cook, eat, smile.  Satisfaction at it’s finest. So I’m thinking of a series called, Transcending Recipes that encompass a sharing aspect.  I hope you check back soon to see upcoming posts for this series.  So lets transcend from a soup to a sauce.  Alright let’s start with the soup, Sweet Red Pepper Tomato Soup.

HOW TO FREEZE TOMATOES

Last fall I had a friend recommend that I freeze my tomatoes vs. canning?  I was like, what? Really?  O.K. I will try anything.  Much to my surprise I was pleasantly delighted.  Over the past few months I have indulged our appetite with these flavorful hints of homegrown tomatoes. The aroma when cooking will totally remind you of that fall tomato essence that entices your taste buds to water.  Well this was my last batch, so let’s make this recipe a good one.  So come next fall, really try this if you have a little freezer space to spare.  First rinse your Roma tomatoes and dry.  Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and freeze.  When froze place in a ziplock.  I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Eat Real Simple continues to be the main theme of which I want to maintain without skimping on taste or nutritional value.  So let’s simply boil a large pot of water.  Remove from the heat.  Add the tomatoes, within minutes you will see the skins separate.  At this stage remove the tomatoes to a plate with a slotted spoon.  Keep 3 inches of the water in the stock pot.  Let the tomatoes cool until you can safely handle removing the skins (and any stem that still might be attached).  This is the first step to creating Sweet Red Pepper Tomato Soup.

Return the tomatoes to the stock pot and cover.  Simmer on a very low heat until tomatoes are just cooked to a soft consistency.

Next are the red peppers and garlic.  Chop red peppers into strips.  Chop the garlic.

To a stockpot add the red pepper strips and garlic.  Saute.

Simply blend the tomatoes and then blend the peppers and garlic.  Return to the stockpot.

Add your remaining ingredients.  And wa la!  Sweet Red Pepper Tomato Soup.

Your transcending recipe will use the leftover soup to be a sauce for a

“Shrimp enchalada with Sweet Red Pepper Sauce.”  Make sure you cook up an extra portion to have enough to endulge in this next transcending recipe.  Check in soon…….this one is incredible!

If you are looking for a couple ingredients in this recipe, they are available at Amazon, and can be shipped right to your door!  The benefits of Coconut Nectar are amazing, low on the glycimic index with a subtle sweetness.  It is a great alternative to sugar.  The cashew butter can be made into cashew cream by simply adding a little water to it, and then process in a food processor or small blender. Creamy and delicious, it is a great alternative to standard whipping cream and it is dairy free!

Instructions
  1. Blanch frozen tomatoes in a pot of hot water until skins come loose. Remove tomatoes with a slotted spoon. Let cool on a dinner plate. Remove skins. Return to stock pot with the juice that was on the plate. Cover and simmer until tomatoes are totally thawed. Simmer for 10 minutes. Cool slightly. Puree in blender until smooth. (If using canned tomatoes simply add to the stock pot of red peppers and garlic.
  2. In a stock pot heat coconut oil on low until melted. Add red pepper strips and saute on medium heat for 5-6 minutes. Stir as needed until soft. Add garlic and water. Continue to saute until garlic is fragrant.
  3. In a blender add the roma tomatoes and puree. Return to the stockpot. Now add the red pepper and garlic to the blender and puree to your desired consistency. I like it to have a few small bits of red pepper and garlic. Return to the stockpot with the tomatoes.
  4. Add cashew cream, coconut nector, coriander, white pepper, salt, and lime juice. Cover and simmer on low for 15 minutes.
  5. Top with a dallop of cashew cream and zest of lime. Serve.
