meatless monday | curried tomato soup with hard boiled eggs

simply judging from the title, i thought this week’s food matters project recipe was going to be good.

i didn’t read the recipe beforehand & tom put together the grocery list, so i didn’t give it another thought until we set out to make it.  tom started pulling out the ingredients, tomatoes, onions, garlic…regular tomato soup ingredients.  but then out came potatoes, coconut milk & cauliflower.

i wasn’t so sure about this soup anymore.

we don’t cook very often with curry, & when we do, it’s usually thai green curry, so this was all looking very different to both of us.  as it simmered though, it smelled heavenly, rich & warm.

& that is exactly how it tasted, with a little added kick from the curry & jalapeño…a wonderfully, deliciously complex tomato soup.

it’s our favorite recipe from the food matters project thus far.

 the only change we made to the recipe was to puree the finished product, adding about 1 cup more vegetable broth, to give it the velvety texture the two of us prefer in a tomato soup. for the full recipe, check out eats well with others.  to see all the other takes on this week’s recipe, visit the food matters project.

    The soup looks amazing. The only thing I’m not sure about is the boiled egg, and I say that as a fan of boiled eggs. How were the eggs with the soup? I have two amazing recipes from the Angus Barn if you’re interested: sweet potato bisque and red pepper bisque. You make some amazing food!

      thank you! i’m so bummed i wasn’t able to make it to busy bee last night, i would have loved to meet you!

      the egg was interesting…it didn’t really add much flavor, since the soup had so much itself, but i didn’t mind it. it added kind of nice textural element.
