    I made the roasted tomato and basil soup from the new summer recipe book and it is really thin... short of adding more tomatoes (which I don't have in apart from tinned) what can I do to thicken it up with no syns? Would passata do the trick?

    I'd just leave it to simmer to reduce it a bit, stirring occasionally.

    I find SW recipes notorious for being watery :(

    Not sure what plan you are following but a handful of split lentils?

    Tend to do EE but don't have any lentils :0( Think I'll stick it on a low boil for a while and see if that helps. Thank you!

    I simmered it and it is lovely and thick.... but my 'serves 4' recipe will now serve a maximum of 2! Ah well it tastes good... I'll double up on everything next time.
