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.

  1. This looks so yummy! My daughter loves the tomato soup from the tin but I'm sure it is full of stuff that isn't that great for us so this looks perfect.
    Just as an aside - have you tried apple cider vinegar for heartburn? It alkalises in the body and works a treat I find xx #Tastytuesdays
