Tomato and Basil is just the perfect combination of ingredients right! I was In the local organic shop the other day they had the most amazing selection of fresh and local tomatoes. It really inspired me to make a soup as the autumn is nearly upon us now.

The flavour this tomato soup packs with only 7 healthy ingredients that you will already have in your kitchen is quite impressive!

You can always freeze this down, so make some more and use for a quick and healthy lunch during the week.

  2. Chop the tomatoes into halves and place onto an oven baking tray, chopped side facing up.
  3. Cut the onion into quarter’s and place onto the tray.

  6. Place in the pre heated oven for 1 hour.
  7. Once the hour is up scrape the ingredients from the tray into a large pot and add the 500-600ml of stock along with the handful of fresh basil leaves (stalks are also fine).
  8. Bring to boil and then allow to simmer for 10 minutes.
  9. Now just hand blend until smooth.

Tip: A nice fresh crusty bread goes amazing with this (gluten free of course)
