Aromatic and Rich Buttermilk Tomato Soup

Aromatic and Rich Buttermilk Tomato Soup

The ingredients in this healthy soup are close to the ones for a certain detox soup. I occasionally add wiener sausages and butter, which aren't very healthy but taste so good!

Ingredients: 4 servings

Wiener sausages
1 bag
Cherry tomatoes
1 packet
Onion
1
Eggplants - small Japanese type
2
Canned tomatoes
1 can
Soy milk
400ml
Butter
30 g
Soup stock cubes
4 cubes
Salt and pepper
a small amount
Broccoli (boiled, optional)
Cooked soy beans
1 bag
Basil
to taste
Garlic oil
1 to 2 tablespoons

Steps

1. Cut the onion in half, then slice it lengthwise into 7 to 11 pieces.
2. Put 300 ml and the onion in a pan, place the butter on top, and simmer over medium heat for about 10 minutes. Adjust the heat depending on your cooker, and be careful not to let the pan burn!
3. Coer the pan with al lid, leaving it slightly ajar.
4. Cut up the eggplant in the meantime. Just slice the then end as is, and cut the fat end in half lengthwise before slicing.
5. Soak the eggplant in water to remove any bitterness (about 5 to 10 minutes).
6. Score the wiener sausages on the surface. Cut any way you like.
7. When the onion has cooked for about 10 minutes, drain the eggplant, add the sausages and then the eggplant to the pan with 300 ml more water.
8. Simmer over medium heat for 10 minutes. Slice the cherry tomatoes in half or into thirds. Rip up some basil leaves (optional).
9. When the soup is cooked through, add the stock cubes and simmer for another 2 minutes. Add the cut up tomatoes and canned tomatoes, soy beans, and 400 ml of soy milk. Simmer over low heat, and season with salt and pepper. Don't let the soup boil.
10. Just before the soup starts to boil, turn off the heat, drizzle in some garlic oil, and serve.

Story Behind this Recipe

This is a variation of a recipe I made when I was in elementary school. The tomatoes make it rich and refreshing from the tartness. Serve chilled in the summer.
