I think this is the easiest soup I’ve ever made. It also tasted pretty darned great as well. Although Heinz tomato soup can never be beaten, if you want a fresh tomato soup, this is the one.

1) pre heat the oven to 180 degrees C. 

2) chop 6 tomatoes, 1 onion, 1 red pepper and place in a roasting tin. Add 2 peeled cloves of garlic and drizzle with olive oil.

3) bake for 45 mins.

4) once roasted, let cool for 5 min and transfer to a blender. Pulse a few times and pour in 1/2 cup of veg stock. Blend for 1-2 mins. Add 1/2 cup of veg stock and blend again til you reach the desired consistency. 

5) season with black pepper, salt and some dried basil.

I pour my soup into a thermos and let it cool, then transport it to work that way. It stops any spillages!

If you have fresh basil I’m sure that would be a glorious addition. You could also add chilli to spice it up.
