Sprouted Fig (The Smoothie Lover)
December 10, 2012

We just went home from an amazing trip to Skt. Peterburg in Russia. It was so nice!
Sankt Peterburg is so wonderful and beautiful. In the city there are palaces and mansions everywhere. They are all builded on the tsar Alexander the Great’s time so they are builded in the beautiful baroque style. And snow – there was so much snow. So cozy!

The Winter Palace

It was pretty cold but that didn’t actually matter at all. We walked around and “tucked in” our big jackets and had tea all the time.

We saw a lot of things on the five days we were gone, but I’d like to go back once since you could spend SO much time in the city. There were so much to see.

Me at the memorial of Lenin.

One of the best things was that my mother and I went to see a ballet. It was great! We saw Raymonda and the dancers were amazing! Wow

But now to the recipe:

You probably all know coming home and the refrigerator is completely empty? Well, this is how I felt today.

I had an exam today and therefore I was home from school already at 11.30 am. Very nice!

I wanted to make something nice for lunch. Those usual packed lunch I usually bring to school aren’t that delicious, so when I finally eat at home it’s so nice to make something “special” (and hot).

But since we didn’t have anything (well, apart from ham and eggs…) I had to be a little creative.

I went on a little discovery in the cupboards and drawers and here is what I came up with:

A lovely tomato soup made of thing you probably always have on hand. And it only takes 15 minutes to make.

Ginger Rosemary Tomato Soup
Serves one

How to do
Fry the onion slices, ginger, rosmary and oregano in olive oil. Fry for 2 minutes. Add the bouillon water and tomatoes and bring it to the boil. Boil for 5 minutes, then blend it roughly in a blender. Pour back into the pot and boil for another 5 minutes without a lit. Some of the water should evaporate leaving the soup a bit thicker.
Serve with a bit of yoghurt on top and some grated cheese. Enjoy!
