Description: Tomato and basil soup is a favourite of mine and is super easy to make, yet tastes super delicious! It is a perfect light meal and can be made with fresh tomatoes. The thick and creamy tomato soup is brought to life here with garlic and fresh basil. I guarantee you’ll never want to go back to the canned tomatoes or canned soup after this!

Better why not try the soup with my Garden Focaccia!

 

Ingredients:

  • 6/7 chopped tomatoes
  • 1 medium sized chopped carrot

Recipe: 

  • Heat butter/olive oil in a pan and saute onion, garlic and bay leaves for 2-3 minutes or until onion starts to become translucent.
