    Mediterranean Vegetable and Tomato Soup

    from New Covent Garden Food Company's 'Soup for all seasons'


    1 tbs olive oil (or frylight) (6 if using)
    1 small onion finely chopped
    1 clove of garlic, crushed
    1/2 finely diced red pepper
    1/2 finely diced yellow pepper
    2 diced courgettes (smallish)
    1 teaspoons sweet smoked paprika
    1 teaspoons fresh rosemary, chopped
    1 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
    1 tins chopped tomatoes
    I litre marigold stock
    1 tablespoon sundried tomato paste (3 syns)
    fresh parsley, chopped

    Cook the onion and garlic with in olive oil until soft - try not to brown. Add peppers, courgettes, paprika and rosemary, cook for 3 minutes stirring. Add balsamic vinegar, simmer for 2 minutes, then add tomatoes and stock and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes until vegetables are tender. Add tomato paste, parsley, season and serve.

    3 syns for the lot – makes 4-5 portions

    This is an old favourite in our household - OH loves it too - says the smoked paprika gives it a bacony taste.

    I've always followed the recipe exactly as its fab as is - I suppose you could add some white beans to bulk it up, or some green beans for colour.
