Homemade Tomato Soup
This is Macedonian version of simple tomato soup, great for the summer and also for every season.
1 kg tomatoes
2-3 tablespoons olive oil (or any kind of oil)
parsley finely chopped
2-3 cloves minced garlic
2-3 eggs (you can skip the eggs, if you don't like eggs)
salt and pepper
few basil leafs
or some other spice that you like
Cut the tomatoes into four vedges. Grind the tomatoes into the pot. If you find this hard, you can peel them and blend them into blender. Than add them to the pot. Put the pot onto medium heat and bring the tomatoes to boil. Cook the tomatoes with open lid until 1/3 of the consistency is boiled down. Add the oil, garlic, parsley salt and pepper (and any spice that you like) and cook this for another 5 minutes. If the soup is too acidic for your taste add a spoon of sugar (although in Macedonia we don't add sugar). Beat the eggs in a bowl. Turn off the heat and add the eggs. Stir them
so they can cook. You can garnish this with parsley, garlic bread croutons or whatever you like.
