Just like the butternut squash soup, tomato soup is another great Autumn favourite. It is also great for using up any vegetables that you have laying about, and for getting vegetables into the kids. My kids love this tomato soup and it is definitely more than one of their five a day. The only trouble is cleaning up when the toddler has finished!!
1 Onion, peeled & chopped
2 tbsp Olive Oil
2 Garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
1 red Pepper, seeded and chopped
2 Carrots, peeled and sliced
2 Parsnips, peeled and sliced
1 x 400g chopped Tomatoes
700ml Vegetable stock
1 tsp caster Sugar
- Fry the onion in the olive oil for a couple of minutes until transparent. Next, add the garlic, carrot, pepper and parsnips and cook for a further 5 minutes
- Add the remaining ingredients, bring up to the boiling point and then simmer for 20 minutes, or until the vegetables are soft.
- Allow to cool a little, and then puree in a blender and reheat gently to serve.
