Some people may only eat soup when it’s cold. I personally find soups delicious at any season, especially this oven roasted tomato soup. With less fluid, so boiled down, the recipe also works great as a tomato sauce, for example, for the Eggplant Parmesan. Further I have eaten the tomato soup cold in the summer and loved it.
By roasting the tomatoes they get a particularly intense aroma. Of course, Roma tomatoes are not always available. Best chances you might have are at your local farmers market or in Italian supermarkets. Tomatoes in general belong to the nightshade family and are therefore related to potatoes or eggplants.
Thanks to the football player Tom Brady, anyone that reads gossip probably stepped over that story, the tomato is somewhat discredited. According to the testimony of his nutrition expert Tom Brady does not eat nightshades because it promotes inflammation due to the alkaloids contained therein. Therefore for people with rheumatism, arthritis or lupus or being a professional athlete should not be recommended. There are conflicting views from other experts. I personally try, at least with the bigger once, to cut out the stem part since most alkaloids accumulate there. For potatoes about 50% alkaloids are destroyed while cooking, for example. Now enough of the negative characteristics of tomatoes, there are also many positive once.
The tomato itself consists of about 95% water, which is certainly an advantage with warm temperatures. It also contains a lot of vitamin A, B1, B2 and potassium and trace elements. Although when being boiled much of the vitamin C content is lost, but it increases the amount of lycopene after about 2 minutes cooking time. Ah, what’s my gain?
Lycopene color the tomato red, which is a nice thing per se, but on the other hand it acts as a scavenger. Radical scavenger is a rather stupid word, because no one can grasp what it means, anyway, at least I do not. In our body caused by different circumstances free radicals are present that can support the onset of cancer. Lycopene help to combat those free radicals. So what do we learn from this, one should not believe that every story in gossip magazines is true or 100% true. Or Jennifer Aniston has now indeed at least 40 children.
