Anyone here into DnD? You can find me in the DnD discord. I'm ZMowlcher. We should have a campaign.
Not "into it", but I'm a little bit interested.

Here's how I make it:
1-2 onions (depends on how much I'm making)
Garlic cloves, minced (lots, I never cook with less than three)
2 celery stalks, minced
1 large carrot, chopped (optional)
Fresh or dried basil, oregano, thyme (use less herbs if fresh, more if dried), minced small and stems removed
Several pounds of tomatoes (I use about three for two+leftovers), chopped
A couple cups of liquid stock (veg, chicken, or beef)
Salt and pepper, to taste
A pinch of cinnamon and/or garam masala, and a bit of chili or cayenne if you're feeling adventurous (optional)
A spoon of yogurt or sour cream (optional, haven't tried it yet, but it should thicken and smooth the consistency a bit)
Saute your onions in butter, and when they start to get soft, add everything else but the yogurt/cream and allow to boil (if using a pressure cooker, cook for 5 minutes on high pressure)*. If using more savory spices and seeds, roast them in the pan for a few seconds until fragrant and then add your butter/oil and onion right away. For your stock, add enough to make it soupy – depending on how many tomatoes you use, it could be one to several cups. Once everything is very soft, blend together with the yogurt. I use an old fashioned hand egg beater, but a fork or an electric blender will work fine too. I don't bother peeling the skins off the tomatoes; they add texture, nutrients, and flavor, also it's a pain to skin them.
Serve with grilled cheese sandwiches (Fancy version: sauteed onions+bacon/meat of choice+brie+savory fruit compote or marmalade).
*When using an onion+garlic combo, always get your onions sauteeing first, and then add minced garlic. The garlic will burn if there's not enough liquid in the pan. Garlic adds a lot of flavor, so when in doubt add some in and then add more than you think is good -- let your nose guide you. Also, I've found that when making savory dishes, adding cinnamon adds a lot of depth to the flavor, doesn't have to be much to round out the taste.
Apologies for the double post, but just wanted to note that there is now exactly one week left for applications. We've had a superb response so far, so much so that we even opened up a new, tenth category, and raised the application limit to four. So if you're out there lurking, waffling back and forth, then now's the time to take the plunge!
I don't think I can commit to it Guess I'll have to wait for the next one
