We all love a traditional bowl of soup with warm crusty bread and tomato soup is no different. It is also very filling and good for you without breaking the bank.


30ml Olive Oil

900g Fresh Medium Tomatoes halved

2 Medium Garlic Cloves

1 Small Potato peeled and sliced

300ml Water

Vegetable Stock

5ml Sugar


You need to lightly oil a roasting tin and arrange the tomatoes with cut part facing up. Add the garlic cloves and season then drizzle with the remaining oil. Once you have done this leave it to roast in the oven for 30 minutes on 190c/gas mark 5.

Boil the potatoes until tender but do not drain the water. Skin the tomatoes and the garlic and once you have removed the skin place the remainder into a food processor or blender. Also place the potatoes and potato stock into the machine and blend until smooth.

Once you have your smooth mixture place it into a saucepan, add a little extra vegetable stock if it is too thick and finally add the sugar. It is now ready to serve along with crusty bread if you wish.
