Tomato soup with wide strip noodles

by | Aug 29, 2018 | Soups

In Hungary tomato soup is tied in with school canteen experiences, 8 out of 10 Hungarians cook it in the traditional way, with roux, sugar and alphabet pasta, as they ate it in the school canteen. Homemade tomato soup is not difficult to make, it’s much better than the store versions, and to top it all off it can be made throughout the year using fresh or canned tomatoes.

Since you can find homemade tomato juice in many Hungarian pantries, tomato soup is usually made from juice, we don’t waste time on peeling and seeding fresh tomatoes (but you can use them if you want). The recipe I use is a healthier one full of vegetables with no roux and sugar, though it’s not pureed.

Hungarian cottage cheese

This is what Hungarian túró looks like

You often ask me what kind of cottage cheese (or curd cheese or farmer's cheese - call it what you want) I use in the recipes. In Hungary the store-bought cottage cheese is dry and crumbly as you can see in the picture. So if a recipe calls for túró, I mean this type. If you can't obtain túró, you can try to make your own from whole milk. Click on the link below.

Metric system vs cup

In Hungary metric units are in use, all the recipes on this website are based on this system, so a kitchen scale is necessary. Since I’m not familiar with cup as a measurement unit, I convert grams to cups by using an online converter. The values in brackets, therefore, are only approximate volumes, so, please, double-check them before you start cooking.
