Smoky roast tomato soup for great skin (8 ingredients)

A few Sundays ago, we had a lovely lunch with a girlfriend at Milk & Butter at Bangsar and talked about frivolous things like a travel perfume dispenser, hair removal laser treatment and getting a pedicure together.


Cooked tomato protects skin from sun damage
Naturally, we ordered their tomato soup because we know tomato is good for the skin. Cooked tomato contains lycopene, a free-radical scavenging phytonutrient which protects the skin from sun damage.

Cooked vegetables for good digestion and glowing skin
Our traditional chinese medicine doctor recommends blended food and plenty of cooked vegetables for good digestion and glowing skin.

Realizing that we do not include enough cooked tomatoes in our everyday cooking, we decided to make a pot of delicious soup for the skin and the stomach.

Knowing that time and energy are not always our friend, we simplified a good roast tomato soup recipe from Barefoot Contessa, Ina Garten.

We’ve omitted the garlic and thyme, but you unless you’ve tried the original one and have discerning taste bud, you can’t really tell the difference. Use a hand blender, it makes cooking soup much easier.

If you want to make it even easier, you can skip blend the soup. Just remember to replace canned tomato with tomato puree and chopped basil finely.
