    Shouroba ta-mata ~ Tomato Soup

    This soup is very light, because it doesn't contain stock. However, should a richer flavour be desired, add 2 cups of meat or chicken stock and thicken with oats accordingly.

    4 lbs (1.75 kg) fresh tomatoes
    1/4 cup oatmeal
    1/4 cup samen (oil)
    2 cloves garlic
    salt to taste
    1 teaspoon coriander

    Peel the tomatoes and liquidise until they give 4 cups of juice. Pour into a soup pot and add oats and salt. Bring slowly to the boil over a low heat and continue to simmer for 20 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent lumps from forming. Add a little water if necessary. Crush garlic and saute in the oil until golden, then add to the soup and continue simmering for 5 minutes. Serve hot.
