Re: VITAMIX TUSCAN TOMATO SOUP - RECIPE PLEASE

I am new to this. Last night at 7:00 Central there was a male chef on with the guy promoting the Vitamix. He had a Tomato Basil soup recipe that was 6 ingredients and one of them was tomato paste. At the end before the host tried it he sprinkled parmesan cheese on it. Anyone happen to have that recipe as it is different from the one already posted?

Does anyone know of a source for the "Blendings" cookbook offered yesterday with the VitaMix, or for the "Tamper Holster" that was also offered. Can't find them anywhere, but haven't checked with VitaMix. Both look interesting.


They have the Art of Blending cookbook & the tamper holster on the Vitamix site. Tori Ritchie the author of the Art of Blending has a website with recipes on it. I found some of the Vitamix recipes they showed on her site last time I saw the Art of Blending cookbook on Q. http://www.tuesdayrecipe.com/tuesday-recipe-archives/

I want to bring this thread forward again in case anyone has received their Vitamix TSV from last Sunday (1/4/15). Please check your new Vitamix recipe books for the Tuscan Tomato Soup recipe. And, please post it here. Many thanks.

Re: VITAMIX TUSCAN TOMATO SOUP - RECIPE PLEASE

Sorry to still be on this tomato soup recipe, & thanks for posting it, iQue & Sylva, but I still don't see the tomato paste ingred. (also bread crumbs mixed in last) I rec'd an email reply @ it & they said it was on pg. 66 & called Pappa al Pomodoro, subtitled Tuscan Tomato Soup. Unfortunately, I have a vm6000, (48 oz.) book & a smoothie is on pg. 66. Just trying to get correct ingred! Would loved to have gotten a taper holder also, as shown with the newer model.

poke, I appreciate your response and helping to keep this thread alive! Thanks for narrowing the recipe down to Page 66, Pappa al Pomodoro (subtitled Tuscan Tomato Soup). Hopefully someone will find it for us and post it. Pg 66 in my book is cappuccino!

Re: VITAMIX TUSCAN TOMATO SOUP - RECIPE PLEASE

That Tuscan Tomato soup looked so easy and yummy. I'd also like to have the recipe. People have asked Jill for it on her Facebook page, but she just referred them to the QVC website's Vitamix recipe section and told them to check The Art of Blending cookbook. They really seem to be holding out on this one. Smiley Sad

Re: VITAMIX TUSCAN TOMATO SOUP - RECIPE PLEASE

I found "The Art of Blending" on williams-sonoma.com & just received it. Here's the recipe.

pappa al pomodoro (Tuscan-style tomato soup). Serves 4.

3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling

1 small red or yellow onion, sliced

3 cloves garlic, sliced

9 fresh basil leaves

Kosher salt

Pinch of red pepper flakes

4 cups (32 fl oz/1 l) water

1 lb (500g) ripe red tomatoes, peeled & seeded, or 1 can (14oz/430g) peeled San Marzano tomatoes

2 tbsp tomato paste

4 oz (125g) day-old Italian bread

Freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Hailing from Tuscany, which is known for its bread-thickened dishes, this soup can be eaten warm or at room temperature in the summer when tomatoes are at their peak. Traditionally it's served nearly dense enough to eat with a fork, but this version is looser. Dust each bowl with cheese & dig in with a spoon.

Warm the 3 tbsp olive oil in a small frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, 5 of the basil leaves, 1/2 tsp salt, & the red pepper flakes & saute until the onion & garlic are very soft but not browned, about 10 minutes, turning down the heat if the onion or garlic starts to brown. Remove from the heat.

Add the water to the blender container. Scrape the contents of the pan into the container. Add the tomatoes & tomato paste. Put the lid on securely & turn the dial to the Hot Soup program*. Blend until the machine turns itself off (this takes about 5 minutes, steam will rise from the lid when it is finished). While the machine is running, cut or tear the bread into 1-inch (2.5-cm) pieces.

When the machine has stopped, remove the lid & add the bread pieces. Put the lid back on securely, turn the dial to variable speed 4, and pulse 3 or 4 times to chop the bread. without pureeing. Taste & add more salt if needed.

Divide the soup among soup bowls, drizzle each with olive oil, and sprinkle with Parmesan. Garnish each bowl with 1 of the remaining basil leaves and serve.

* Hot Soup Setting: Start at variable speed 1, then gradually increase to the machine's highest speed & run for 5-6 minutes. Not all models are programmed to turn off automatically.

Reminder: Always set the variable speed dial back to 1 after blending. That way the machine will be at the right speed next time you start it.
