The Greenhouse,

is about growing matters, focusing on my greenhouse and potager. I grow mainly vegetables, herbs and spices but flowers have their given place too. From seed to table, this is the nursery for my living food, we cook a lot of delicious food and I say a potager is the cook’s best friend. The greenhouse makes it possible to grow essential, colourful, warmth loving fruit and vegetables even in this climate such as tomatoes and chillies. My main blog is Tyras Trädgård/Tyra's Garden.

Tyra’s Red Booster Soup

This post "Tyra’s Red Booster Soup" was originally uploaded by Tyra Hallsénius Lindhe in the blog The Greenhouse... 

Tyra’s Red Booster Soup 
- A red soup with tomato, sweet red chili pepper and carrot.
 The recipe makes tomato soup for 2-3 soup bowls  or  6-10 appetizers(small glasses)

This booster-soup is wonderfully red, it has very few calories and is packed with loads of excellent vitamins. It only takes about a quarter of an hour to prepare, so…this is true fastfood. 


Soup base

500 gr. red ripe tomatoes, all kinds
1 yellow onion
1 small sweet chili pepper
1 carrot
5 dl water 
Herbal salt

1 garlic clove
A assortment of fresh herbs (basil, thyme, sage, chervil, parsley, tarragon)
Peruvian pepper (whole)

Clean and cut the veggies into fairly large chunks.
Put them all into a saucepan and cover with water.
Bring to boil and let it simmer for 5 minutes
Add the herbal salt
Put it all in the blender and mix on high speed until smooth.
Now, add the garlic clove and the herbs into the soup and mix for a few seconds.
Add more water if necessary.

Pour the soup into a soup bowl and decorate with the Peruvian pepper and fresh herbs.


1. Add hot chili pepper to spice it up.


2. Serve Tyra’s  Booster Soup  ice-cold in pretty glasses with a celery stalk and perhaps some lovely big prawns on a stick.

Now that makes a really nice appetizer

Bon Appetit!/ Tyra
