Tomato soup in 10 minutes

Confession time! I have never made Tomato soup, I envisaged that it would require loads of over ripe field grown tomatoes that would be troublesome to source.  So what a delight to stumble on Mary Berry's foolproof, "easy as" recipe.  This soup is very tasty and freezes well, so with Autumn supposedly in full swing, whip up a batch today. All you need,is virtually in your pantry or fridge right now.


6 Sundried Tomatoes in oil
2 crushed cloves of garlic
3 x 400g tin of crushed tomatoes
500 ml chicken stock or vegetable stock
1 Tablespoon of caster sugar
150 ml milk
150 ml cream
 Salt & Pepper to taste

Garnish - Basil Pesto


Place a large deep saucepan on the stove, add 1 Tablespoon of Oil from the Sun dried tomato jar.
Add garlic and stir for a few minutes.
Add the sun dried tomatoes, tin tomatoes, stock and sugar stirring until it starts to boil. Reduce heat to simmer and place a lid on the saucepan.'
After 10 minutes, remove from the heat and using a stick blender, whiz to combine.
Stir in milk and cream and adjust seasoning.

Serve warm with a teaspoon of pesto.
