This is the most basic tomato soup recipe that can also be doubled up as a base of a sauce for pasta. Super simple and tasty, but for me i think the olive oil really boosts the dish to different levels!
1tbsp olive oil
2 tins tomatoes
500ml vegetable stock
1 garlic clove
1 finely diced red onion
1 grated carrot
(optional, small bunch basil finely chopped, add in when you fry the onion)
generous pinch salt and pepper
- Add the olive oil to a medium soup pot along with the onion and carrot.
- When the onion is soft add in the garlic and a generous pinch of salt and pepper.
- When the garlic is fragrant add in the tomatoes and stock and simmer for 15 minutes.
- You can leave chunky but personally i love blending mine with my immersion blender.
For a simple bolognese add in some Italian herbs and some fried mince or quorn straight into the sauce!
