Homemade Tomato Soup

Today I want to share with you a wonderful simple recipe for homemade tomato soup.  I really cannot tell you where this recipe came from as I have been making it for years.  I remember fondly my student days when we made huge pans of this for the whole house of 6 and it cost very little yet filled us up.
  • 1 tin of chopped tomatoes
  • stock cube (chicken or vegetable)
  • squeeze of tomato ketchup
  • 3 slices of bread (great for using up stale bread)
  • Splash of cream or milk
This will feed a family of four.  I have made double the quantity here as we will be having it for lunch and as a starter tomorrow night.
  • Pour tomatoes in pan
  • Fill the can with water twice and add to pan
  • Crumble stock cube into the pan
  • Bring to the boil and simmer for 15 minutes
  • Cut crusts of the bread and cut or break up into small cubes
  • Add the bread to the pan, stir and simmer for another 15 minutes 
  • Blend the soup
  • Return to the heat and simmer for further 5 minutes
  • Add small amount of cream or if none in the house or prefer low fat version add a little drop of milk
 Serve & enjoy!
