The Best Tomato Soup ever.

Tomato SoupThis Soup is simple and delicious. Ingredients.

  • Six tins of tinned plum tomatoes.
  • 500ml Passata.
  • Bunch of chopped fresh Basil.
  • Two onions. Chopped.
  • Two good size garlic cloves. Chopped.
  • Kilo potatoes. Cubed.
  • 1l Vegetable stock.
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce.
  • Tabasco sauce.

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.
