    1 tin chopped tomatoes, tomato puree (to your own taste) i usually add 2 tablespoons
    half a teaspoon salt, half a teaspoon sugar, and cornflour to thicken.

    Sweat chopped onion in margerine to soften. Add milkand water and tin of tomatoes. Add tomatoe puree, salt and sugar. Simmer for 10 mins then blend to smooth consistency thicken with cornflour.

    Simple and quick, hope you like it.

    Actually Jaffa, it reminds me of an occasion many years ago when I was invited to a friend's for tea and her Mum asked what would I like. She said well she likes tomato soup.

    The Mum duly went to a great deal of trouble to make HM tomato soup and I thought it was horrible

    Being the well brought up person I was I finished it all and said how lovely it was but I have never had HM tomato soup since.

    I know a few recipes for tomato soup but the quickest has to be

    1 lrge jar of passatta
    touch garlic puree
    3-4 oz cream
    fresh basil
    touch salt

    no prep just bung the ingredients together

    hello - this recipe is from my mum and a firm favourite at weekends.

    sorry about the vague quantities!

    1 onion
    3-4 carrots
    2 x tinned tomatoes (plum or chopped)
    knob of butter or marg or tsp olive oil

    melt fat, sweat roughly chopped onions and carrots for about 5 mins.
    add tinned tomatoes and cook on a simmer for about 30 mins.
    blitz in a food processor or using a blending stick.
    add some water if too thick.

    can be easily frozen.
    r.mac, you are so wise and wonderful, that post was lovely and so insightful!

    Jaffa, try this one

    It's easy to do and you can omit the peppers if you don't like them

    1 tin tomato puree
    2 tblsp demerara sugar
    juice of 1 lemon
    salt & pepper

    Process tomatoes.
    Combine all ingredients
    Heat and season well.

    Serve!

    I like mine to have a bit of a kick to keep out the chill.

    1 onion and 1 clove garlic and 1 red chillie sweated down in pan, add 2 tins of tomatoes and a little stock simmer for bout 15min then let cool and blend.
