One of the best things about soup is that it tends to be quite low in points!
That means that you can have a big bowl of warming, tasty soup with a slice or two of bread (if you have the points to spare).
This Tomato Soup is pretty straight forward to make and whats more, it freezes well.
Keep it in the freezer for up to 3 months and then reheat slowly on the stove top for an easy low point lunch whenever you want

Tips for making this Tomato Soup:
- For an extra tasty Tomato soup, use vine ripened tomatoes.
- I talk about de-glazing the pan in this recipe. When cooking Weight Watcher friendly meals you use less oil than you normally would when frying / sauteing food. This means that when sauteing onions etc, you run the risk of bits of the onion sticking to the bottom of the pan. By adding a splash of water to the pan after you have sauteed and using a wooden spoon to scrape those browned bits off, you are preventing the onion from sticking further and burning when the other ingredients are added. You are also adding to the overall flavour of the dish by doing this (as long as it is done before the bits have started to burn!).
I love this soup served with a drizzle of sweet balsamic vinegar and a chunk of french bread ????

What I used to make this soup.
I used a immersion blender, like this one, to blend the soup.
I use a good quality Balsamic Vinegar, like this one available from Amazon, to drizzle over my soup for extra taste!

- 3 cloves garlic finely sliced
- 6 large tomatoes tomatoes
- 1 stock cube made up with 500ml hot water
- 6 basil leaves
- 1 tbsp tomato puree / paste
- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
- balsamic vinegar optional
- Heat the oil in a large saucepan and when hot add the onion and carrots. Cook for 5 - 7 minutes, stirring to prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the pot.
- Once the onions have become tender and translucent, add a tablespoon of water to the pot and use a wooden spoon to scrape any of the browned onion into the mixture. This will do two things, it will prevent any bits of onion from burning to the bottom of the pan and will also add to the flavour of the soup. Add the garlic and saute for one minute
- Add the chopped tomatoes, stock, basil leaves, tomato puree, salt, sugar and pepper and stir. Bring to the boil and then reduce the heat till the mixture is gently simmering.
- Cover the pot and leave to simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Remove from the heat and use an immersion blender to blend until smooth. You could also use a processor/ blender by adding the mix in batches & blitzing till smooth.
- Taste & season further if required.
- Serve immediately with an optional drizzle of balsamic vinegar.
