A homemade tomato soup is a wondrous thing Heinz is insipid by comparison

I think that's the whole point when I feel bleuch. I don't want my tastebuds challenged or over-excited. Bland food.

Darn it. I now have a sudden desire for tomato soup.

GG - there are also several variations on the theme in the recipes database.

I like roasted tomato soup best. I don't really have a recipe, but just bung the onions, tomatoes, garlic and herbs in the oven for 45 mins - 1 hour. A few courgettes wouldn't hurt either. Then whizz up everything with some chicken stock, season and add some extra basil. You can run it through a sieve if skins and seeds bother you, but I mostly don't unless I'm trying to be posh.


Thank you for reminding me of that (I've made the Delia one in hte past). Onions, garlic, courgettes, tomatoes and basil now roasting in the oven

Delia's Roasted TS is brilliant. From memory (well, this is how I do it) - cut toms in half and put in roasting tin cut side up. (Delia skins them, but I don't bother). Sprinkle with chopped garlic, ground black pepper and torn basil. Drizzle with olive oil. Roast in a hottish oven until the edges are blackened. Meanwhile, boil (a) potatoe(s) in whatever quantity of water. When toms are ready, scrape the lot, including the juices and the burnt crusty bits, into the potato and water - and whizz in the blender. So yummy! Mmm, roasted tomato soup with hot baguettes. Heaven!

That's exactly what we had for lunch (sieved as well - not 'cos I'm posh bit I don't like the tomato skins )

I'm waiting to get bored with tomato salads so that I can fry them in butter and have them on toast. (Shhh - or on bacony fried bread).

I follow Judith's method and I add a few chillis and peppers.

I do a roasted red pepper and tomato soup, which is similar to Judith's (only with some peppers!)

And there's always minestrone.

https://www.cooked.com/uk/Sarah-Raven/Bloomsbury-Publishing-Plc/Sarah-Raven39s-Garden-Cookbook/JulyAugust/Tomato-soup-recipe

From Sarah Raven's Garden Cookbook (nice book!)

Dead easy, made this last week and my quiltie girls all asked for the recipe, tho' in fairness I added a little bit of chopped chilli and a bit of leftover fresh pineapple...
