There are many different ways to make a good tomato soup. The best way is to keep it simple. Throw the chopped onions, basil and garlic into a pot with a small bit of butter and give it a gentle fry. Once browned throw in the tins of tomatoes and the passata. Add Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco. Add vegetable stock. Bring to a boil.
Blend with a hand blender. Garnish with a small sprig of basil. There’s nothing that goes with a great tomato soup than warm cheese bread, olives, oil and balsamic vinegar.
