RECIPE - Tomato Soup

I love soups - I find they're great for lunch, or for a mid-afternoon snack as they really fill me up, are easy to make and are a great way to get lots of free vegetables into your diet. I made this one today, and its completely syn free:

3 medium onions
3 cloves garlic
4 tomatoes
2 tins chopped tomatoes
1tsp oregano
1tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 chicken stock cubes

  1. Roughly chop the onions, garlic and tomatoes.
  2. Spray a soup pot with frylight, put on the lowest heat and add the veg. Cover with a lid, and allow to sweat for 10 - 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the tins of chopped tomatoes, oregano, balsamic vinegar, stock cubes and boiling water. (I normally use a kettle full of water)
  4. Cook for about 30 minutes, remove from the heat
  5. Blend
  • Adding a chopped chilli in stage 1 will give the soup a lovely kick
  • Adding a handful of basil leaves between stages 4 and 5 will make a delicious tomato and basil soup
  • If you like it creamy, add a spoonful of fat free natural yogurt to your bowl and stir through

  1. I've never tried making my own tomato soup. This sounds really good.
