The Fifteen Minute Tomato Soup

Yes, I made this in fifteen minutes flat. It doesn't have oil, it isn't too spicy. No, it isn't bland. It made a perfect lunch for a work-at-home day like today where I was too lazy to cook but had to make something tasty to fill those hunger pangs! Ready? Here is the quick recipe!

The Fifteen Minute Tomato Soup


4 medium tomatoes
1 medium onion
1 cup water
2 inch cinnamon stick
2 dried bay leaves
1/2 tsp pepper
Salt to taste


Cut the tomatoes and onions into quarters. In a pressure cooker, put in the tomatoes, onion, cinnamon stick, bay leaves and the water. Cook till one whistle is done. This will take about 8 minutes. Lower the flame and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Tomatoes and onions pressure cook fast!

Remove from the cooker, fish out the whole spices. Blend the vegetables together to form the soup. Strain to remove the tomato skins and seeds. Add some water if you wish to adjust the consistency to your liking.

Season with salt and pepper and voila!Your fifteen minute, no oil spicy soup is ready to slurp!
