Spicy Tomato Shorba

I came across this recipe from Sunset Magazine, my AWESOME aunt (that's "au-nt" not "ant") gave me.

Its a super easy soup with tons of flavor. I tweeked the recipe a bit, but the basic idea was there.

Spicy Indian Tomato Shorba
2 large cans tomatoes
olive oil
1+ tsp garam masala
1+ tsp cumin
1/2 red onion chopped
1 - 2 cloves garlic
hot sauce to taste
small piece ginger
about 1/2 cup + coconut milk
lemon juice or vinegar
salt and pepper
1 small tomato, reserved for garnish.

Warm a little oil in a pan then add the dry spices, cook a minute then add the onion. Cook for another minute to coat and just soften the onion.

Add the rest of the ingredients except the tomatoes to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.

Add the tomatoes in batches and blend until smooth.

After blending pour into a bowl set over an ice bath to chill.

To finish, top with a couple slices of tomato and a drizzle of coconut milk.
