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.
No, today I have no minestrone for you. I'm just – again – off the subject because I left my memories run free. But today's soup is just as tasty. I serve you a typical Italian combination today in soup form: Tomato – Mozzarella – Basil. The recipe comes from the book “At the table!” Christian Henze and is also great for cooking beginners 😉
Tomato soup with mozzarella and basil
Ingredients: (For 4 people)
- 500g ripe cherry tomatoes
- 4 cloves garlic
- 8 THE Olivenöl

- 400g peeled canned tomatoes
- 1 ball (buffalo) Mozzarella (125g)
- Salt and pepper
- Oven to 180 ° C (top / bottom heat) Preheat.
- The cherry tomatoes wash and prick with a fork several times.
- Peel garlic, chop coarsely and place together with the tomatoes on a baking sheet. 5 tablespoons oil over drip, season with sea salt and slide for 20 minutes in the oven.
- Finely dice onion. Heat the remaining oil in a saucepan over medium heat and fry the onions until translucent.
- Basil leaves and canned tomatoes add to the onions and cook for about 15 minutes at low temperature.
- Add the chopped mozzarella and cooked cherry tomatoes and puree everything well with a hand blender.
Tip: If the soup is too thick liquid, carefully add a little hot water and puree again until the desired consistency is reached.

Simple and delicious – typical of the Italian cuisine 🙂 And when the sun no error!
