This is my 21 year old Norwegian cookbook. It is very thick and have a lot of great information in it! And also many great recipes. As you can see, I have used it alot… The book has many of the traditional home made Norwegian food recipes, food that I grew up with. Every now and then, I open it up for any kind of information, and I always find something new or something that I have not eaten for many years. Like in the USA, Norwegians are eating much food that is not made from scratch, but with this soup, you will never again want to buy a can of tomato soup in the store!! Enjoy!!
2 slices of bacon
about 30 oz tomatoes (pick your favorites) In the reciepe is says you can use two boxes of canned tomatoes insead, but that would be like missing the whole point of homemade….
3 cups vegetable or beef broth
1 tbs. butter (to fry the bacon and onion in)
3 tbs. flour
1 tsp. dry thyme
1 bay leaves
I forgot to buy bacon… but it tasted great anyway….!
Chopp the tomatoes and put in pan with onion and bacon. Let it simmer for about 10-15 minutes. Stir occasionally. Make sure it does not burn.
And the wonderful spoon pot clip is helping out again!! 🙂 What a great invention!!
Stir in flour, add the broth, timian and bay leafe. Let it boil for about 20 minutes.
Now its time to sift the soup.
Boil the soup a bit longer, until it has the right consistent that you like!
I must say this is the best tomato soup ever!! Let me know what you think! 🙂 Stay tuned for more great home made Norwegian recipes from my wonderful “Kokebok”.
