Soupmaker: Cream of Tomato & Basil Soup Recipe

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.
