You Will Need:

8 Large Tomatoes

2 Large Red Onions

Garlic & Seasonings

Olive Oil

1 x Tine of Chopped Tomatoes

Cream (to finish)

Bread, Cubed (for croutons)

Method:

1. Pre-heat oven to 180’C

2. Cut the tomatoes and onions into decent chunks and put into a baking pan- drizzle generously with oil and and add seasonings to taste- spicy of herby, whatever you like!

3. Cook for about 20-30 minutes, checking regularly to see if the are cooking and/or burning

4. Whilst cooking, open the can of tomatoes and place them in a sieve, over a bowl, allowing the juices to separated.

5. Once the mixture is soft, place everything from the baking tin into a large sauce pan on a low heat.

6. Using the same pan, add the bread and coat with olive oil for the croutons- cook for about 15 mins

7. Using a hand held blender, mix everything together until it’s fairly smooth and has more liquid- taste to see if seasoning is needed. Blend to desired texture, I like it a little chunky.

8. Add in the drained tomatoes and blend for a few seconds again. Add half of the juice to taste.

9. Leave to heat through for about 5 mins- or until the bread is ready!

10. Once soup is heated and seasoned to taste- serve straight away into bowls and swirl a little cream on top!

11. Lastly add your golden croutons to finish! (I always add a little pre grated cheese too)

I have used this recipe many a time and it’s so simple and easy to do! I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you have a good tomato soups recipe, I would love to give it a go!
