    Will give this a go, I've recently been having a lot of homemade tomato and basil soup, just a tin of tomatoes half-heartedly passed through a sieve, sprinkle of dried basil, salt and pepper. 53 calories as it is, or 64 with a dessertspoon of single cream in it. One tin makes two portions, and the flavour is so intense that you don't feel the need to eat more, but as it is so saintly, it won't do much damage if you do!
