This is one of the easiest and heart warming things to create in your kitchen and you can add so much magick to it.
Remember that your mood will affect your food. If you are happy and dancing in the kitchen, the food that you put on the table will uplift the mood as well. If you are angry while preparing a meal, you can’t be surprised if the people you eat with suddenly start having arguments.
Tomato Soup with love
olive oil or butter (your preference)
1 diced red onion (you can use a regular onion as well, but I prefer the taste of the red onion here)
1 diced red bell pepper
2 cloves of garlic
about 5 large (ripe!) tomatoes
a small can of tomato puree
chicken or vegetable stock (enough to put everything under water)
a sprinkle of salt
Directions: Put the olive oil into your pot on low heat. Add the diced onion and cloves of garlic. Let it simmer for a bit until the onion glazes. Do not let the garlic turn brown. Add your red bell pepper, the tomatoes and the can of tomato puree. Stir it clockwise (about 1 minute) for attracting things. Focus on the things you want to manifest while you stir. Add the chicken or vegetable stock. Let it simmer until the bell pepper and the tomatoes are soft. Use your blender or immersion blender to blend the soup to the consistency you prefer. Put it back on a low fire and add a pinch of salt, some black pepper, a sprinkle of basil and oregano.
How much of it all? That depends on your personal flavour. I don’t use a lot of black paper because the kids don’t like a strong pepper taste but feel free to add as much as you like. Basil and oregano are used generously because they think it makes everything taste like pizza 😉
