tomato soup by Jamie Oliver

I’ve always loved tomato soup and juice of the canned variety. Unfortunately, they contain a lot of chemical sounding ingredients that do not grow out of the ground. Canned soup and juice are tasty because of the high salt content and flavour enhancers.

If you’ve ever had tomato soup made from scratch, you’d notice that the taste is nothing like canned soup. It is less intense and tastes closer to fresh tomatoes. Your taste buds might need to be retrained to appreciate fresh flavours, but stick with it and your health will be better in the long run. Don’t kid yourself. Freshness doesn’t come in a can or box. Which is why I find it puzzling that this recipe uses both fresh and canned tomatoes.

Shopping list: celery, carrot canned plum tomatoes, fresh tomatoes, basil, chicken or vegetable broth (it’s okay to use a cube)

From the pantry: onions, garlic, salt, pepper

Hardware: blender

Can I do it?: It’s easy-peasy Jamie’s recipe
