Tomato Soup

So if like us you are feeling a bit distressed that the weather has taken a turn for the worse, then perhaps some tomato soup could warm you up. Tomato soup holds memories for me of being of school sick as a teenager, now I love how quick, easy and nutritious a bowl of homemade tomato soup is…

Ingredients

  • 1 large onion
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 large carrot
  • 2 sticks of celery
  • 1 jar of passata or 2 cans of chopped tomatoes
  • Fresh basil
  • 350ml vegetable stock
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Method

  1. Chop and fry your onion in olive oil until soft and slightly brown, add chopped garlic
  2. Add your chopped carrot and celery and fry all together until soft, add water if it gets too dry
  3. Once this is softened, add your passata or chopped tomatoes, season with salt and pepper
  4. Add vegetable stock and allow to simmer for 15-20 minutes, add some fresh basil
  5.  Whizz the soup and it is ready to eat, if it seems a little too thick, add some more water
  6. Season with salt and pepper, sometimes I even ass a little pesto. Ideally serve with homemade bread!
