    Default REC: Quick tomato soup

    That's what was for dinner. The recipe is from
    <http://www.telegraph.co.uk/foodanddr...uick-tomato-so
    up-recipe.html>
    I suspect it is by Xanthe Clay, though this is not explicitly stated on
    the paper's Web site.

    The soup does indeed take only a few minutes to prepare, being
    semi-homemade, so to say... I used passata instead of whole tomatoes.

    Quick tomato soup
    Makes four little cupfuls or two bowlfuls

    The chilli sauce is optional, but often popular with even small
    children.

    1 tbsp butter
    1 clove garlic
    400g tin of tomatoes
    1 tbsp tomato purée
    A shake of sweet chilli sauce (optional)
    Nutmeg (optional)

    * Melt the butter in a small pan and crush in the garlic.

    * Allow to cook gently for a few seconds, then tip the tomatoes into the
    pan, along with the tomato purée, about

    * 8 fl oz/225ml water, and shake in some chilli sauce.

    * As it heats, whizz it with a hand blender until smooth. Don't let the
    mixture boil if you can avoid it.

    * Season lightly with a grating of nutmeg.

    I wasn't familiar with "passata". Reading up it seems as if it is tomato
    puree. However the recipe also calls for a small amount of tomato puree. Are
    they the same thing?

    Passata (di pomodoro) is the same product as peeled, tinned whole
    tomatoes, but crushed and passed through a sieve. Tomato purée is a
    concentrated (usually double or triple) paste.

    BTW, your MSOE stripped the "REC:" from the subject of the post.

    Sounds like what you call puree is what I call tomato paste.

    I see that. I think it cues on the colon and thinks it's RE:, which is
    supposed to prevent RE:s from stacking up where there are multiple replies.

    Yes, so it seems.

    There is more to it than that. Outlook Express is deliberately broken.
    I explained it before:
