Any recipes please? Or recommendations for shop bought ones that aren't too bad for you?

Thanks in advance

Fry soem onions and garlic until soft.
Pop in a tin of tomatoes (chopped or whole) - and a stock cube of your choice (chick/veg) - top up wioth water.

Simmer. Longer you leave it, the nice it will be :)

Blend when you want it.

And cream/milk if you want and stir in :)

Easy peasy

I do the same as 0010001, but with the addition of oregano, black pepper, salt and a teaspoon of sugar

I do the roasted tomatoes method.

Halve a kilo of toms and place cut side up in a roasting tin.

Add a couple of small cloves of garlic (skin on), and a couple of sprigs of thyme.

Season and drizzle olive oil over them.

Roast at 200c until the tomatoes are soft and begining to char at the edges.

While the tomatoes are roasting heat up 500ml of stock.

When the tomatoes are roasted, remove the roasting tin from the oven and pour in the stock.

Turn the oven down to 180c and return the tin to the oven for 10-15 minutes.

Remove the roasting tin.

Locate and skin the garlic cloves then return them to the soup.

Blend the soup until smooth.

OPTIONAL (but it is much better if you do this): sieve the soup to remove the tomato seeds and skin.

Serve with a dollop of creme fraiche.

I do mine with onion, carrot and a tin of tomatoes (bit of garlic, few herbs)

Sweat finely chopped onions and carrot in butter. Add dried basil, and pour in a carton of tomato juice.

Have people wanting to know your recipe for that lovely tomato soup you make Grin

Fry onions, garlic, whole tomatoes in a bit of butter, then add passata, tomatoes puree,basil, black pepper and vegtable stock.
Simmer for about 40 mins (till soft).
Blend and sieve if want, add cream and reheat.

Takes about an hour max and is so tasty!

+1 for roasted tomatoes. Also nice with a couple of roasted red peppers too.

HeyMicky · 26/10/2015 20:04

Another for roasted tomatoes, but use chicken stock and add some cream when blending

Sautee onion and garlic in small amount of oil (or oil and butter) add one sliced carrot and one chopped potato and cook for a few minutes, add very ripe skinned and chopped tomatoes (or tinned) add salt, pepper,brown sugar and pinch of herbs. Cook a further few minutes and add some water and stock cube. Lower heat and cook until potato and carrot are soft. Blend and add a splash of milk, rectify thickness by adding more water if too thick. Add very finely chopped parsley or basil.

Boil some tiny raviollini or other filled pasta and add to the soup. Serve with grated parmesan or similar cheese on the side. I usually serve the pasta out of the soup so that everyone serves themselves along with the cheese

In slow cooker or large saucepan, put 2 tins chopped tomatoes, 1 tin baked beans, I beef oxo cube and a pickled onion (add a bit of tabasco or Worcestershire sauce if liked). Heat till hot. Blitz well with blender stick and reheat. Beyond easy and delicious. NB pickled onion essential.

It's in my slow cooker now for a charity lunch tomorrow. I make it a lot and often double the quantities and freeze.
