Make simple tomato soup
This tomato soup is super simple, healthy, and pretty cheap too! Serves 2.
- One tin of chopped tomatoes
- One small onion chopped finely
- Two cloves of garlic
- A teaspoon of sugar
- A tablespoon of tomato puree
- Drizzle of oil
- Basil and croutons to garnish
Soften the onion in the oil, add the teaspoon of sugar and warm over a gentle heat until the onion caramelises. Crush the garlic and add to the pan along with the tomato puree; if the mixture is getting a bit dry add a splash of water. Cook for 5 minutes to allow the flavours to mix and the garlic to heat through.
Add the tin of tomatoes. Fill half the empty tin with water, give it a slosh round to pick up any tomato residue, then add that to the pan. Allow to simmer for 20 minutes or so and serve with the basil and croutons. You may like to blend the soup to make it smooth and add a dash of cream.
Hope you enjoy!
