Warming Homemade Tomato Soup with Basil Oil

26/2/2014

With the weather being a little up and down at the moment, we’re swapping sandwiches for something a little warmer – homemade soup!

I always thought that making soup sounded a little like hard work, how wrong was I!  I asked the chefs for a simple tasty recipe and they suggested Tomato Soup with basil oil.  It’s easy to make, delicious and keeps me full until home time.

Ingredients for the soup:

  • ·         1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • ·         ½ onion, chopped
  • ·         200g tinned cherry tomatoes, chopped
  • ·         1 courgette, diced
  • ·         ½ pint vegetable stock.

Ingredients for the Basil Oil:

  • ·         Large handful of Basil
  • ·         4-6 tbsp olive oil
  • ·         Salt and freshly ground pepper for seasoning.

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a pan and gently sauté the onion for 2-3 minutes until soft.
    2. Add the tomatoes, courgette and stock to the pan and simmer for 8-10 minutes.
    3.       To make the Basil Oil – place Basil, oil and seasoning in a blender and blend until smooth.
    4.       Remove soup from heat & roughly blend (either with hand blender or pour into a food blender)
    5.       Serve soup with a drizzle of basil oil

This recipe made enough for 3 cups (or 3 lunches at work)

Yummy! Give it a try
