Easy Peasy Tomato Soup



This tomato soup is incredibly easy to make from the larder. The ingredients are likely things most people keep in stock and it cooks in 20 minutes. Perfect!


Add a chopped onion to a pot and soften in oil for a few minutes over a medium heat. If you like your soup garlicky you can also add a clove or two of minced garlic after a few of minutes. I added dried garlic as I didn’t have any fresh cloves.


Once the onion is softened, tip a tin of tomatoes into the pot. Fill the empty tin with water and add the water. Season with as much basil as you like (lots in my case) and leave to simmer for 15-20minutes on a low heat with a lid slightly ajar.


Once the soup is cooked blitz with a stick blender. Season with cracked black pepper and a dollop of natural yogurt if you like it. Serve!
