Simple to prepare, delicious tomato basil soup. Great for an easy lunch served with bread or cheese on toast!
If tomatoes are not in season, good tinned tomatoes are better than mediocre fresh ones!
Peel fresh tomatoes by making a small 'X' on the bottom and dunking in boiling hot water for 15-30 seconds. The skin should slip off easily.
Made it healthier. I didn't use butter or as much oil and used a spray instead to keep calories down. I added a teaspoon of granulated sweetner to bring out flavour of toms and it was delicious! Thanks x - 27 Jun 2011
