We made tomato soup today and most children loved it!! We also added a marrow from the school garden that the children planted in Bryony.
Tomato Soup (and four other vegetables)
As close to the Heinz version as you can get without the added sugar and salt!
3 tbsp olive oil, 1 medium onion – finely chopped, 1 medium carrot – finely chopped,
1 -2 sticks of celery – trimmed and sliced, 1 clove of garlic – peeled and crushed
1 medium red pepper – deseeded and chopped, 1 tbsp tomato puree, 25g brown rice
850ml vegetable stock, Black pepper to taste
Heat the oil in a large lidded saucepan. Tip in the chopped onion, carrot and celery, stir well, cover and cook gently for about 10 mins. Add the crushed garlic and chopped pepper and stir, cover and cook for a further 5 – 6 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste and let cook for a minute then add the brown rice and stock. Bring to the boil, stir then simmer with the pan half covered for about 25 – 30 mins until vegetables are soft and rice thoroughly cooked. Leave to cool for about 10 – 15 mins (or longer if using a nutribullet to blend). Process the soup in batches in a blender or food processor until as smooth as possible. Return to the pan and reheat, adding a good grind of pepper to taste.
A firm weekend favourite with my children – and easy way to get lots of veg into them!
We hope you had a great summer holiday.
