Tomato Brazil Nut Soup (serves 2)

This is one of my favorites. If you haven't tried nuts in soup, you might enjoy the new experience. Brazil nuts add a chewy consistency and special flavor.

Food you'll need
1 medium or large brown/yellow onion
Cooking oil, extra virgin olive oil preferred
3 cups water, distilled preferred
3/4 teaspoon salt
6 medium red tomatoes, diced (roughly 4 cups diced)
1/2 to 3/4 cup sliced Brazil Nuts, measured after shelling and slicing
Tomato Brazil Nut Soup

Preparation (30 minutes)
Peel and dice onion; sauté in oil until partially brown and tender. In medium-sized saucepan, combine water, sauté onion, and salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, then add tomatoes and Brazil Nut slices. Cook for another 5-10 minutes, until tomato is desired consistency.
