• What better way to warm up winter days than with a spicy soup. This yummy healthy spicy tomoato, carrot and basil soup definitely hits the spot :) 

    You will need: 

    2 tablespoons of olive oil
    1 red onion (finely chopped)
    1 clove of garlic (sliced)
    1 chilli (chopped)
    1 tin of chopped tomatoes 
    1 packet of passata
    2 medium carrots
    1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
    A generous squeeze of tomato puree 
    1 vegetable stock cube 
    25ml of water 
    Salt and pepper to taste 
    Fresh basil 


    1.       Heat the oil in a large pan. 

    2.       Fry the onions until softened over a medium heat. Add the garlic and chilli and fry for another minute.

    3.       Add all the other ingredients except for the fresh basil. 

    4.       Bring everything to the boil, then turn down the heat and cook on a low simmer for about 35 to 40 minutes. Turn off the heat. 

    5.       Blend the soup either in a blender, food processor or hand held blender. 

    6.       Rip up the basil leaves and sprinkle over the top.

    7.       Serve with a chunk of warm bread dipped in olive oil.
