I’m going to re-make and update this recipe as a couple of people have said it was a bit thin and too sweet for them. The sugar is optional, and depends on your own sweet tooth.
Pottering with our soupmaker will never go out of fashion. The kids love Heinz so I thought I’d give a basic tomato soup a try. I have tried making tomato soup before, but it just didn’t cut it for the boys and I hadn’t bothered to try again.
I made this version with slightly sweeter tomatoes than I did previously, and added a little caster sugar which made the soup more palatable for them.
It came out better than I expected, but I would be tempted to leave out the basil at my next attempt – and make sure I strain it before serving.
The kids complained about the tiny pieces of tomato skin in the soup which I didn’t mind.
