Recipe Ingredients for Tomato Soup

750 g plum tomatoes
3 stalks celery, washed and trimmed
1 large brown onion
1 1/2 cups low sodium vegetable broth
4 cloves garlic
1 tbsp tomato paste, low sodium
1 tsp sugar (this helps counteract the acidity of the tomatoes)
1 Salt and pepper, to taste
80 g orzo pasta (or risoni, whichever you have handy)

Recipe Directions for Tomato Soup

  1. Cut a cross into the base of the tomatoes and blanch so you can slip off the skins. Roughly chop tomatoes, celery, onion and garlic.

  2. Heat a little olive oil in a pot over a medium flame, then add the chopped vegetables and saute for 5 minutes and then place the lid on the pot and simmer for 20-30 minutes, or till the celery is soft. Blitz with immersion blender (or just have it chunky if you don't have an immersion blender), then press through a sieve to remove any tough fibres that will ruin the texture of the soup.

  3. Add the strained puree back to the pot and stir through the stock, tomato paste, salt, sugar and pepper. Once it is well combined, add the orzo and bring the pot to a simmer over medium heat, cooking till the pasta has gone soft.

  4. Serve piping hot, with a decent hunk of crusty bread for mopping up the soup.
