if you like spicy soups, this is fantastic (and soup-er easy)

Tomato Rasam

for the soup:
1 lemon, supremed (sectioned https://www.marthastewart.com/1512359/supreming-citrus)
10 tomatoes, peeled and roughly chopped
4-5 cloves garlic
1 inch fresh ginger root
1/2 inch fresh tumeric root or 2 tsp dried tumeric
1 fresh chili pepper
1-2 tsp coarsely ground black pepper

for the temper:
2 tbsp oil
1 tsp mustard seed
1/2 tsp cumin seed
1/2 tsp coriander seed
a few curry leaves (dried or fresh)
pinch of asafoetida (skip it if you don't have any)

For the soup, put everything in a blender or food processor and puree.  Bring to a boil, cook just above a simmer for 15 minutes.  Just before the soup is done, heat the mustard seeds in the oil.  When the mustard starts popping, add the other spices, fry for about a minute.  Drizzle temper on the soup when serving.

I hadn't made it for years but suddenly had a craving for it on the weekend.  I suspect it will go into pretty regular rotation.  It will clear your sinuses out, for sure, but so delicious...

I had SO MANY root veggies (carrots, parsnips, turnips) and no real recipe in mind. DH chopped a bunch up and roasted them yesterday. Today I made a puree of of them with a box of miso broth I had. I seasoned it with cumin and garlic, and served it over grilled sausages, with cilantro on top. I'm not eating a ton of carbs right now so I had a high ratio of sausage to soup, but I could have happily eaten this on its own by the bowl.

This had been on my list for a while. It was good but not great. I would like to work on it abit more to see if I can improve it.

That's a lot of cilantro! You gotta know your audience with that one, I bet.

That said, cilantro is delicious. I haven't paired it with broccoli, now I'm curious. What didn't you love?

Confession: I left out the cilantro

I think next time I'd either make my own green curry paste or try a different one. It ended up being just a hint of green curry vs a very strong flavor. A generous squeeze of lime and settling over night helped a lot.

I may try it with cilantro next time though. I kind of wonder if I wouldn't despise it so much if it were all mixed in and not huge leaves of grossness?

I know people say liking cilantro is genetic but i used to hate it and now I like it. Not sure what changed.

I think whether it tastes like soap is genetic... I imagine it's possible to not like it even if it doesn't taste like soap.

I dislike it less now and can tolerate it as an ingredient in a multi-ingredient thing.  I suspect it has something to do with sense of taste and smell diminishing (even in small amounts) as we get older but what do I know.

Me too.  My DD doesn't like it.  Very sad for me.

Genetic transplant? :D

I like cilantro, but I'm not sure I'd like that particular recipe. It's a lot of...flavors.
