Green Tomato Soup

After summer ended abruptly I was left with a million green tomatoes. We scoured the Internets to find ways to use them, like this soup from Snowgoose and Waffle liked the soup okay. I found it vile. The green tomatoes were too acidic for me even though I added sugar. Perhaps I should have roasted the tomatoes first?


    • 8 slices smoked bacon
    • 1 1/2 cups scallions, Leeks work as well
    • 1 tablespoon garlic, finely chopped
    • 1 whole bay leaf
    • 4 -5 cups chopped unripe green tomatoes
    • 1 cup chicken broth
    • 2 cups water
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  1. Heat oil in a large 4 quart pot over medium high heat.
  2. Add bacon and cook until browning.
  3. Add scallions, garlic and bay leaf until all is tender and cooked through.
  4. Add salt, pepper and tomatoes and stir well, then add broth and water.
  5. Bring to a simmer and cover partially for 35 minutes.
  6. Taste to adjust seasoning if need be.
  7. Enjoy!
