I’m on my broom early this year (witches evil laugh) with this Green Goblin Tomato Soup. I love green tomatoes and always have. I remember my mother and grandmother frying, baking and canning fresh green tomatoes from the garden every year. When you pick your tomatoes for this soup make sure your green tomatoes are just a little bit firm, you don’t want them too soft, and you certainly don’t want them to feel like a baseball. We seem to have an abundance amount of tomatoes this year, and I love the sweet and tanginess of a green tomato, so what better to start the ghoulish holiday than with this wonderful Green Goblin Tomato Soup.
I love to scare the kids with new scary things this time of year, and I did that very thing with this Green Goblin Tomato Soup. In each bowl I put one of those edible eye balls in the bottom, this is my time of the year to get even for jumping out from behind the doors). When they loaded to spoon to take a bit and picked up that gross looking eye-ball – I screeched at them that very moment one the most used sayings in the world at Halloween, “I see you my pretty”, and this set the whole table screaming and laughing for the next twenty minutes. Sorry, they ate all the eyeballs, sadly I have no pictures of that happening.
Surprise your family this Halloween with this Green Goblin Tomato Soup. It’s sure to keep your ghouls warm and toasty.
- 8 cups – Green Tomatoes – diced
- 6 – Garden Onions - diced
- 2 – Garlic Cloves – minced
- 1 to 2 – Jalapenos – diced*
- 1 – Green Bell Pepper – diced
- 2 tbsp. – Coconut Oil
- 2 cup – Water
- 3 tbsp. – Heavy Cream
- Salt and Pepper – to taste**
- In a medium stock pot sauté onions, and green peppers in coconut oil on medium/low with lid for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Add garlic, jalapenos, green tomatoes, water, salt and pepper, cook on medium/low for 20 minutes. Turn heat down for to simmer, remove lid and cook for 10 minutes.
- Remove from heat and put in food processor or use a hand emulsifier until soup is a thick smooth texture. You can also leave soup chunky for a chunky texture.
- Add heavy cream and serve, or wait for soup to be completely cooled, and pour into freezer safe bowls, and freeze until needed.
*For mild/medium taste only use 1 jalapeno. **I started with ½ teaspoon of each. Once soup is cooking, adjust to taste.
When I make this Green Goblin Tomato Soup I always make one smaller pot, and toned down the jalapeno peppers for the younger grandchildren, and for my husband, who’s not a big hot pepper lover (I can’t believe it either).He likes just that little touch of heat to his food, I’m the one who loves all things super-hot. You can even freeze this up and have a nice hot bowl throughout the winter to keep you toasty warm. So before you leave all those tomatoes to turn red, make sure to pick some for this Green Goblin Tomato Soup, don’t forget the eyeballs or some edible spiders, and scare your family, and guests for this Halloween.
