This is practically all I ever want to eat. Or know how to cook. Come to think of it, the two might be related.
4 cans of peeled tomatoes (Net Weight 28 oz. ea. can)
A green pepper
(And any other vegetables you like)
Empty the cans of tomatoes with juice into pot. Then I slice the tomatoes in half, because I buy them peeled whole. Add vegetables after making them bite-sized. Add a few bay leaves (My mother insists that this makes a difference but I am skeptical; nevertheless, your soup will have leaves in it, which is funny [don’t eat them though]). I do this process in four layers: a can of tomatoes, each vegetable, then repeat…. Then add water. You want to fill the pot with vegetables, that way the water merely fills in the empty spaces between them. Cook until vegetables are soft, or, if you are impatient, eat it when the soup is hot but the vegetables are still raw – whatever.
Add salt, if you like.
