  1. Saute carrots, onions, garlic, and celery for 4 to 5 minutes in a little olive oil. Add the diced potatoes and let cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Add tomatoes, herbs, chili and season with salt and plenty of pepper. Let cook for 20 minutes.
  3. Add stock and let cook for 40 minutes on low heat.
  4. Once all veg is soft, transfer to blender and blend on high until smooth. Add more stock for consistency, if required, and re-heat if necessary.


A stick blender works best to puree hot soup. Hot soup in a blender can be explosive, so blend in very small batches.
