Yes Tomato Soup, and this recipe tastes so similar to the ‘Heinz’ favourite but without the hidden sugars, salts and other nasty stuff! So comforting and warming to the tummy! Guaranteeing you feel a little better and reaching for a second helping…
1 tsp olive oil
1 clove garlic, roughly chopped
2 large carrots, peeled and roughly diced
2 sticks celery, roughly diced
2 x 400g cans chopped Italian organic plum tomatoes
800ml vegetable stock
handful basil leaves
3 sprigs parsley
Salt and pepper
Place the olive oil in a large saucepan over a low heat and gently fry the onion, garlic carrots and celery for 10 minutes until soft. Add the canned tomatoes, stock, fresh basil and parsley. Bring to the boil, season and simmer for 40 minutes.
Puree the soup, then push through a strainer and return to the saucepan. Reheat. Adjust the seasoning to taste and serve with crusty bread.
