Quick and easy
“Tomato soup is a soup made with tomatoes as the primary ingredient. It may be served hot or cold in a bowl, and may be made in a variety of ways. It may be smooth in texture, and there are also recipes which include chunks of tomato, cream, chicken or vegetable stock, vermicelli, chunks of other vegetables and meatballs. Popular toppings for tomato soup include sour cream or croutons.”

Perfect as a winter warmer, this soup is my favourite during that time of year.

You will need:

1 red onion
4 garlic cloves
5g thyme sprig
1 packet cherry tomatoes
1 packet of big plum tomatoes
Drizzle olive oil
1 vegetable stock cube
Ground oregano
Ground herb and garlic
500ml-1L water
Garnish mozzarella/gruyere cheese

In a medium to large pan, drizzle olive oil and start to sweat the roughly chopped onion, garlic and picked thyme on medium to low heat. Chop the tomatoes and place it into the pan with cherry tomatoes. Occasionally stir before adding vegetable stock cube, water, seasoning of salt, pepper, oregano and herb and garlic. Bring to boil till the tomatoes are visibly soft before transferring into a blender. Once the soup is smoothly blitz, transfer it back into the pan, check it’s seasoning once more then serve right away with cheese and breed.
