Whenever I buy tomato “seconds” (nearly over-ripe, slightly bruised tomatoes), I make fresh tomato juice and and/or tomato soup.
This Fresh Tomato and Sauerkraut Soup is as easy as it gets — and it tastes wonderful. The juxtaposition of the sweet tomatoes and the salty and crunchy sauerkraut is fabulous!
Just a word of caution about tomato “seconds.” Don’t let them sit on the counter overnight or they may be spoiled and moldy by the next morning!
There are no specific amounts. It’s impossible to mess this up! 🙂
But be sure to buy a good sauerkraut so you get the probiotics your body needs. For information on sauerkraut and probiotics, see the previous post on this blog.
- Pulverize the tomatoes in a high speed blender until you have tomato juice.
- Pour the fresh tomato juice into little serving bowls (or your could use small cups).
- Top each serving with a little sauerkraut.
- You might want to also add some chopped parsley.
Enjoy and be healthy!
