This healthy and warming tomato soup is made from fresh seasonal vegetables. It’s a tasty blend of leeks, celery, tomatoes, onion, carrot and garlic. Lots of vitamins and healthy stock will get you warmed up! It’s tasty and easy to make!
- 1 onions, peeled and chopped
- 2 carrots, peeled and diced finely
- 1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed
- 1 stick celery, finely chopped
- 1/2 stick leek, finely chopped
- 3 large fresh ripe tomatoes, quartered and then halved again
- 1.8 litre of boiling water
- 2 vegetable and 1 beef stock Knorr Stock Pot
- salt and ground black pepper, to preference
- handful fresh parsley, shredded (optional)
Once all your vegetables are washed, peeled and chopped, most of the work is already done. Take a large pot and put on a medium heat. Put in a good lump of butter (or oil or a combination if you like), and let this melt and heat up. Be careful not to let it burn though!
Next, we add on the carrots, leek and celery, and let this stew for a bit until they get soft. Regularly stir, so nothing sticks to the bottom of the pot. After a good 10-15 minutes, add on onion and garlic and stir in.
As last, add on the chopped fresh tomatoes and stir these in as well. Leave for a good 5 minutes and poor in the water.
Add on the stock pots and stir until these are dissolved entirely. Now leave the soup to simmer and brew for approx 45 minutes or until the vegetables are soft. Stir on occasion.
Once the vegetables are soft, you can have a taste of your soup and see if it needs seasoning. I only added on pepper and parsley from my balcony garden as it didn’t need more salt. This came enough from the stock and the garlic. Serve hot!
