Sunday there was a picnic Organized in Brussels with few bloggers. And as I had met Apolina from Bombay-Brusselles the week before I thought why not go and meet some more bloggers.
It was meant to be a picnic in one of the parks there, but the weather was bad, so Corinne was kind to invite all of us to her home so that we didn't had to cancel it.
We were with eleven,plus Apolina's daughter and Corinne's daughter.
Ofcourse what do when bloggers meet they talk about food and eat and eat.
Ofcourse we had to eat, there were plenty of food , all of us had brought few goodies from our kitchen.
If you hopp over to Apolina's place you will see in details who all were there.
Now to the recipe. I am sure I have told tha tmy hubby loves a cup of soup before his lunch and if ther eis no soup he is like a child who didn't get his dessert.
Winter or summer he just love his soup. I make soup and keep in tupperware so that there is soup every lunch.
And now at the moment it is time for really delicous looking tomatoes in the market I make them with fresh tomato and in winter i use tinned ones.
500 gm tomatoes Chopped
1 large leeks chopped
2 onions chopped
2 stick celery chopped
2 carrots chopped
2 garlic cloves chopped
1 tbsp tomato puree (optional)
1 tsp sugar (optional)
100 ml or more cream
couple of tbsp parsley
1500 ml vegetable broth
Pepper to taste
2 tbsp of olive oil
Heat the oil in a large pan ( I use my pressure cooker so it is fast done) add all the vegetables except the tomatoes, saute them for few minutes and then add the tomatoes and garlic mix weel.
Add the rest of the ingridients and when it boils cook in a slow heat for some 10 minutes.
When it is cooked I use a hand blender to mix everything.
And then add the cream stir well and serve.
