My children love Tomato soup and it’s a great way to get them to eat vegetables that they would normally turn their nose up at. I have used carrots and courgettes in this recipe but other vegetables would work too. The soup is really easy to make and is ready in about half an hour.
2 cloves of garlic
1 courgette (grated or finely chopped)
3 medium carrots (grated or finely chopped)
2 cartons of passata
2 tbsp tomato puree
2 vegetable stock cubes
tbsp dried basil
tbsp balsamic vinegar (optional)
Saute the onion in butter (or oil) until soft.
Add the carrots, courgette and garlic and give it a stir.
Dissolve the stock cubes in 500ml of hot water, add to the pot along with the pasatta and tomato puree.
Bring to the boil, then reduce to a medium heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
Add vinegar if using.
Leave to cool slightly, blend and serve.

Drain and rinse kidney beans, then mash them in a bowl. Fry the onion, carrot and garlic with the butter on a low heat until softened, then add the spices.
