Tomato soup is more than just a dish: it is a real symbol of Italian cuisine.

Tomato soup: a journey of taste through Italy

The preparation tells the story of a country where the unmistakable aroma and intense colour of the tomato has always played a key role in many traditional dishes.

How is tomato soup served in Italy?

In Italy, tomato soup is served as a starter or main course, often accompanied by crispy croutons or dressed with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Depending on the Italian region you visit, it is not uncommon to find variations of this soup enhanced with ingredients such as fresh basil, chilli pepper or grated Parmesan cheese. These ingredients actually make it even tastier and more appetising, and are able to characterise it according to the taste you wish to achieve.

How many days does tomato puree last in the fridge?

Tomato puree can generally be kept in the fridge for about 3 days after opening, provided it is stored in an airtight container. However, it is always advisable to consume it as soon as possible, to savour its freshness and authenticity. Make sure you follow the directions on the packaging from Pomito to store it for the correct amount of time.

Recipe for winter: tomato soup is a winning dish

When the days get colder, tomato soup is the perfect choice to warm yourself up. An excellent recipe calls for tomato puree, chopped onion, garlic, basil, salt, pepper and a pinch of sugar.

Chop the spring onion, carrot and celery finely and stew them in a pan with oil, salt and a splash of water. When they have softened well and the water has completely evaporated, add the fine Pomito pulp, sugar, salt and fresh herbs (finely chopped), then cook gently for 30 minutes. At the end, add the goat cheese, let it melt and mix well with the tomato cream.

Serve with croutons and a little sour cream or yoghurt on top.
