I cooked up a pot of tomato and ginger soup for dinner tonight. It was nice, I was pleased with how it turned out. I made it up as I went along-- Fryed up some onion, ginger (lots), garlic, fresh herbs I picked from my parents' garden today (marjoram, chives, thai basil) in a lump of butter, whacked in two tins of tomatoes, some tomato paste, balsamic vinegar, water, beef stock cubes, brown sugar, pepper and salt. I tried unsuccessfully to push it all through a sieve, so it remained sort of clumpy. But good eating though.
