Ingredients

Olive Oil

1 tablespoons

Onion(s)

1 large

Celery, Raw

2 stick(s)

Carrots, raw

1 medium

Basil, fresh

6 leaf/leaves

Garlic

3 clove(s)

Tomato Purèe

4 tablespoons, level

Tomato

6 large

Chicken stock cube(s)

1 g, 750ml

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium-low heat. Add the onion, celery, carrot and basil and season. Cover and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened but not coloured.
  2. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute, until aromatic. Stir in the tomato paste and cook for 2 minutes, then add the tomatoes, the 750ml stock and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Increase the heat to high and bring to a simmer, then reduce and simmer for 20 minutes to break down the tomatoes and blend the flavours.
  3. Working in batches, pour the soup into a blender and blend until smooth (or leave part of it chunky) returning the soup to a new pan to warm through. Spoon into bowls and serve with your choice of garnish.

Notes

Garnish with 1 tsp Parmesan per serving for 1 extra SmartPoint or chilli flakes for no extra SmartPoints.
