    Hello,

    I'm sure there's lots of versions of tomato soup, but I made this yesterday & I think it's yummy :)

    Ingredients
    750g of tomatoes
    2 red peppers
    1 yellow pepper
    1 medium red chilli, chopped (optional)
    1 stick celery, finely chopped
    1 medium carrot, peeled and grated
    1 onion, finely chopped
    1 clove garlic, crushed
    Handful basil leaves
    1/2pt chicken stock

    Method
    1. halve the peppers and grill under a high grill until the skins begin to blacken. Set aside to cool.

    2. Place tomatoes in a bowl and cover in boiling water for 30 seconds. Carefully remove from water and remove the skins. Chop the tomatoes and discard the skins.

    3. Peel the skin from the peppers when cooled. Remove all skin and seeds and chop roughly.

    4. Spray a large heavy-bottomed saucepan with fry light and place on a medium heat hob. Fry the onion, celery, carrot, chilli and garlic until softened. (3-5 mins)

    5. Add tomatoes and peppers and cook for a further 5 minutes over a gentle heat.

    6. Add the chicken stock and roughly tear the basil before adding to the pan. Cook for a further 10 minutes.

    7. Remove the pan from the heat. Blend ingredients using a handheld blender until smooth.

    8. Serve with a spoonful of fat-free fromage frais.

    Made even tastier by the fact that vine tomatoes & peppers 69p a pack in Aldi :D
