The first time I made this soup, I was little overwhelmed, but it grew on me. Make this soup any time of year or right before cold season to keep your body ready to fight the bad guys. So, don't be afraid if it tastes weird at first...try it again and I bet you'll love it.
If you find this too overpowering, add in cubed potatoes, carrots, celery, white beans and cauliflower to make a one-pot dinner.
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 6 garlic cloves, minced
- 3 ripe tomatoes
- 1 tbsp chili powder
- 1 tsp paprika
- 4 1/2 cups water
- 1/4 cup fresh parsley
- Peel and cut the tomatoes. Saute the garlic in olive oil for 2 minutes.
- Add the tomatoes, chili powder, paprika, and water. Boil, covered for 30 minutes.
- Serve hot, garnish with Parsley. Works wonderfully with crusty bread.
