Method

  1. Put the oil, onions, celery, carrots, potatoes and bay leaves in a big casserole dish, or two saucepans. Fry gently until the onions are softened – about 10-15 mins. Fill the kettle and boil it.
  2. Stir in the tomato purée, sugar, vinegar, chopped tomatoes and passata, then crumble in the stock cubes. Add 1 litre boiling water and bring to a simmer. Cover and simmer for 15 mins until the potato is tender, then remove the bay leaves. Purée with a stick blender (or ladle into a blender in batches) until very smooth. Season to taste and add a pinch more sugar if it needs it. The soup can now be cooled and chilled for up to 2 days, or frozen for up to 3 months.
  3. To serve, reheat the soup, stirring in the milk – try not to let it boil. Serve in small bowls for the children with cheesy sausage rolls then later in bowls for the adults as Hot Bloody Mary soup (see 'Goes well with' recipes, below).

Seems simple enough need to create this for school so hopefully it all works out!

Made half the amount of soup, didn't have any celery so used full amount of carrots and 300g potatoes. Used 6 fresh chopped tomatoes instead of tin tomatoes and 680g jar of passata . This soup was delicious the best tomato soup I've ever had, did not bother adding the milk, it was perfect flavour without, plus I'm dairy free.

Fantastic soup made this yesterday for the family, they all liked it. My daughter asked for it again for her tea tonight. I also have a weeks supply to take to work for lunch. Will definitely be making this again.

Amazing soup! Try adding a carton or two of the tomatoes with basil or chilli for an extra kick. Didn't bother with the milk... There is enough favour on its own

Really nice soup, full of veg and goodness. The kids and baby loved, I didn't add too much milk.

I was looking for a good tomato soup as my youngest daughter was requesting the tinned variety. Ugh. I made half the quantity of this recipe and froze in kiddie-sized portions. Both the kids LOVED it, as did their friends who have begged me to pass the recipe to their parents!

Really easy and utterly scrummy. I left out the milk and added a little double cream to be a bit more indulgent

I finally got round to trying out this receipe this week, it went down well with my other half as he is a real tomato soup fan. I did put a little more milk in then suggested and it made a lovely creamy soup, accompanied with chunks of home made malted brown loaf made in my breadmaker, lovely.......................

I am making a big pot of country veg soup next week for our lunch which also goes down well, fill's us up and keeps us warm on these long, cold winter days. Roll on the summer, (although, the only thing I will miss of this winter is making loads of different home made soups).............

I have tried this recipe and it's very, very lovely. I have passed this recipe on to a couple of friends and love it to. My other half is very fussy with tomato soup but he loves this one.

fan.

Lovely soup. Didn't use celery, as don't like it, used rosemary rather than bay too. Served with crusty bread and a little grated cheese.

Very very tasty! I halved the quantities and had enough for 3 lunches for both of us. Will be making this again. And again.

Hi I don't know whether I am using your website wrong. I would really appreciate it if it was possible to have more than 5/6 recipes per page and that it could be extended to 25 or more. The problem is when out of the home and trying to look up the website, the time wasted by waiting for each new page to load.

Very easy to make and tastes delicious. Works well with single cream instead of whole milk. I serve it with olive, feta and sun dried tomato scones.

Prior to this the only soup i'd ever made was homemade vegetable broth as taught to me by my mum. It took me longer than the 1hr 15mins due to the amount of prep, but it was worth the wait, this is absolutely gorgeous! Will now become a staple in our house :D

I am 15 and have just started my own food blog t0astfordinner.blogspot.co.uk it would really help me if you looked at my blog and commented or told people you know about it. Thanks x
