Tomato soup with mozzarella and basil

Soup in the sun weather we have now? Admittedly, I was a bit surprised when I asked you for the next court for my Blog. But then I reminded me of my childhood, when we went in the summer to Italy and have visited there my grandparents. Sicily, in August temperatures around 40 ° C are not uncommon there and what it had to give at least you always? Minestrone. Well, for the sake of family I have ever eaten it, although I prefer to eat such dishes in winter.

Tomato soup with mozzarella and basil

No, today I have no minestrone for you. I'm just – again – vom Thema abgekommen, weil ich meinen Erinnerungen freien Lauf gelassen habe. Aber die heutige Suppe ist mindestens genauso lecker. Ich serviere euch eine typische italienische Kombi heute in Suppenform: Tomate – Mozzarella – Basilikum. Das Rezept stammt vom Buch “At the table!” Christian Henze und ist auch für Kochanfänger super geeignet 😉
