Creamy Tomato Soup

Tomato Soup

Making your own tomato soup is very rewarding as you can adjust the flavours to suit your preference and it is far more delicious and nutritious than any soup from a tin. It is very easy to make and cooks in just 25 minutes – all you need is a large pan and a good hand blender.

Tomato soup is the perfect warming comfort food for a rainy day, and today is a rainy day so we all enjoyed this creamy tomato soup for lunch today. A little secret about this soup is, despite the creamy texture, there is no cream!

This nutritious soup is made creamy with white beans – although, you would never know there are beans in this soup. I used tinned cannellini beans which you can buy from any supermarket or here, but if you have any other white beans, I am sure these would work just as well.

You must make sure your tomatoes are ripe for the best flavour, the redder they are, usually the riper they are. I had some juicy vine tomatoes that I have been meaning to use up for a few days, so these were perfect.

You can enjoy this soup on it’s own or with crusty bread.

Bon appetit!
