When itís raining outside and the nights draw in earlier, a comforting bowl of piping hot homemade tomato soup can be just what the doctor ordered. There are few moments that can beat that first dunk of a warm crusty (always buttered) baguette or the first slurp. If you have a glut of ripened tomatoes, then of course use those, but tinned tomatoes act as a great and cheaper substitute all year around. For a creamier soup, add 200ml of single cream at the very end. The chilli in this recipe gives an already hearty dish a spicy kick that brings your soup to life.

Ingredients

  • 1tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion, peeled and chopped
  • 2 sticks of celery, chopped
  • 1 red chilli, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1 400g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 1 litre vegetable stock

That's goodtoknow

If you have a jar of sun-dried tomatoes in the cupboard, add a few to the soup at the very beginning for a richer tomato flavour.

Method

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan. Add the onion, celery, chili and garlic. Cook over medium heat until softened. Add the tomatoes, water and stock. Bring to the boil.
  2. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Liquidize the soup in a blender or use a hand blender. Serve

Made it with tomatoes out of my garden (too many to just eat ) and green chillies from my garden too...will let you know the results...smells heavenly at the moment

Love this recipe - I double the ingredients though as we always want seconds and I sometimes swap the celery for a red pepper if I haven't got any. Add some black pepper at the end and serve with warm brown batons x
