Recipe: Curried cream of tomato soup with apples

Curried cream of tomato soup with apples — one of many healthy recipes from Mayo Clinic.

Curry is a combination of spices that can include cumin, pepper, chili peppers, ginger, onion, cinnamon, paprika, cilantro or tumeric. This soup has a sweet — not spicy — taste. If you prefer a more chunky soup, don''t blend in the food processor or blender.


Directions

In a soup pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion, celery and garlic. Saute until tender, about 4 minutes. Add the curry powder and cook, stirring about 1 minute. Add the tomatoes, bay leaf, thyme, black pepper and rice. Stir constantly while bringing to a boil. Add chicken broth. Return to boil and then simmer for about 30 minutes. When rice is tender, remove the bay leaf.

Pour the soup into a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Pour the soup back into the pot and add the milk and apple cubes. Cook until heated through. Ladle into warmed individual bowls and serve immediately.
