Easy Tomato Soup

I love Tomato soup but for some reason the cans of soup have started to give me really bad heart burn so i decided to give making my own a try. There are many ways to make Tomato Soup but since i need to be quick these days i opted for using Passata instead of fresh on the vine tomatoes.

You'll Need
2 cartons 500g of Passata
1 medium Onion
1 large Carrot
1 Celery stick
2 tbsp Olive Oil
a good pinch of sugar
1 tsp Dried Basil
2 pints hot vegetable stock (Follow the insurrections on your stock cube pack)

To Make

Start by chopping the Onion, Carrot and Celery and heat the oil in a large pot.

Fry off the veg until its softened and only just starting to brown.

Pour in the Passata, add the dried basil and the sugar. Give it a good stir and let it bubble on medium for a few minutes. While this is cooking, dissolve the stock cubes in the boiling water.

Lastly add the vegetable stock and give it a good stir.

Cook for 30 minutes.

As there are chunks of vegetables in the soup you will need to ladle the soup into a blender and blitz till smooth. It will thicken up so don't panic. Serve right away or pour into containers for storage.

It can be kept in the fridge for 2 days or frozen for future lunch times :)

Its a delicious lunch for the whole family, that goes brilliantly with a freshly baked loaf of bread.
