A lovely classic soup, fantastic for a warming lunch or part of evening meal, brilliant for batch making for freezing too, so ready any time.
Ingredients: Serves 2
1 litres vegetable stock
1small onion, chopped
2 stick celery, chopped
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil, about a small handful from the bunch
1 tablespoon tomato puree
400g plum tomatoes, cut into wedges
Pinch of ground sea salt
Pinch of freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons plain low-fat yogurt
Combine the vegetable stock, chopped onion, celery chopped basil, tomato puree, salt, pepper and plum tomato in a large saucepan and bring to a boil then reduce the heat and simmer for 30 minutes.
Remove the pan from the heat and allow the soup to cool for a few minutes, next blend in a food processor or with a hand blender until really smooth, you may need to do this in a couple of batches to get a really smooth soup, just add a little extra stock if you want the soup a little smoother. Serve the soup with the croutons and a little nutmeg sprinkled on top
