Tomato and Basil Soup

Tomato and Basil Soup

Two tins of chopped tomatoes, a good make will make the soup nicer
One large onion, roughly chopped
A good handful of basil leaves, chopped
Two vegetable stock cubes
Two pints water
A knob of butter

Gently saute the chopped onion in the knob of butter until transparent, add the two tins of chopped tomatoes and stir for a couple of minutes until warmed through.

Add the basil leaves, stock cubes and water and cook for approximately ten minutes.

Liquidise the mixture and enjoy with homemade herb butter on crusty bread.

This is a recipe based on one of James Martin's recipes from his last series and is absolutely delicious and quick as well as healthy.
