Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

This creamy tomato basil soup recipe is very similar to the la madeliene soup.

It's simple to make with just a few ingredients.

You could use dried basil (about 2 or 3 teaspoons would be enough) as a substitute.

You will never open a can of soup again once you've tried this!


Take a can of chopped plum tomatoes and a box of passata.

That is sieved tomato.

Empty them into a pan and let simmer for around 20 minutes

Take a stick blender and whizz the soup smooth.

You then need cream, butter, basil and black pepper. How much you use depends on taste.

I add about 2 Tablespoons of butter and 2 of cream.

Season with black pepper and dried basil.

Stir it trhough, reheat and then serve into dishes.

I like to add a dollop of cream on top as well.

Serve with some lovey crusty bread
