Creamy tomato soup recipe

Posted on

Soup is a lovely Winter  warmer and such a quick lunch-time fix too. I’ve always got a stash in the freezer and ‘T’ loves it, this is my favourite soup recipe:


4 x large carrots, sliced

6 x large tomatos, sliced

2 x medium sized potato, chopped

1 x red onion, chopped

vegetable stock

a few leaves of basil, finely chopped


Glug of olive oil

1/2 cup cream


Cook the onions in the oil for a few minutes to release the flavour. Add the rest of the vegetables, seasoning and add enough stock to just cover them. Simmer for 30-45 minuites or until vegetables are soft. Add in the creamand basil and blend. This freezes really well and is best served with some hot bread or toast and a swirl of cream on top.

  1. Soup is such a lovely warming winter food, I’ve been trying to catch up on a few blog posts while I’m waiting for my varnish and paint to dry and saw your wonderful gingerbread house, it looks brilliant and aren’t those little shoes just adorable. A lovely blog, thank you for sharing.
