One fantastic soup to have is Carrot and Tomato soup. Just follow these simple instructions

Serves: 2 adults and 2 children

Equipment: Chopping board
Small knife
Vegetable peeler
Medium saucepan with lid
Wooden spoon

Ingredients:
1 onion
1 large carrot
1 medium potato
500g (1lb) tomatoes
1-2 garlic cloves
1 tablespoon olive oil
900ml (1 1/2 pints) vegetable or chicken stock
3 teaspoons sun-dried or ordinary tomato paste
2 teaspoons caster sugar
Salt and pepper
Small bunch fresh basil, to serve (optional)

What to do
1. On the chopping board, peel and finely chop the onion
Peel and cut the carrot and potato into small cubes
Wash and chop the tomatoes
Peel and crush the garlic

2. Heat the oil in the saucepan, add the onion and fry over a medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring from time to time with the wooden spoon, until pale golden.

3. Stir the carrot, potato, tomatoes and garlic, then add the stock, tomato paste, sugar and a little salt and pepper.
Bring the mixture to the boil, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.

4. Tear the basil leaves into pieces and stir half into the soup. Ladle into the bowls and sprinkle the rest of the basil over the top. Serve with warm crusty bread.

TIP
If you prefer smooth soups, blend the finished soup in a liquidizer or food processor. Reheat to serve in necessary.

Thanks for reading and enjoy your Carrot and Tomato soup!
