How to Make Caribbean Citrus Tomato Soup

Cutting citrus peels

Step 1 – Peel the orange and the lime with as little as pith (the white stuff immediately under the skin) as possible and cut the skin in strips.

Squeeze the juice out of the orange, lime and lemon.

Step 2 – Chop the onion fine.

Peel the tomatoes by slicing a cross into the base with a knife and submerge them into boiling water. When you see the skin parts at the cut, transfer the tomatoes into a bowl of ice water. When cool, peel the skin off. Peeling the tomatoes is not a must, but if you don’t have a blender, making the soup smooth is easier without the tomato skins. Cut the tomatoes in quarters.

Heat olive oil in a pan and add the onion, citrus skins and tomato quarters. Allow to cook for a few minutes and then add the orange, lime and lemon juice.

Step 3 – Cover the pan and simmer for about 20 minutes. Transfer everything from the pan into a food processor and blend until smooth.

Step 4 – To make sure you have a velvety smooth soup, place a sieve over a pan and pour the soup from the blender straight into the sieve.

Smooth soup

Step 5 – To finish the Caribbean Citrus Tomato Soup, add salt, pepper, nutmeg and taste the soup.

If it is too bitter of sour, add a pinch of sugar. If it it not enough, add some orange juice.

Pour the soup in bowls or plates and decorate with strips of basil.
