Cream of Tomato & Basil Soup

Heinz, Home-made, frugal, thrifty, easy, quick

I was very pleased to be approached by Penny of Penny’s Recipes to write a guest post for a favourite low cost and easy recipe of mine. I have been following Penny’s blog for a long time and share her ethos for thrifty and simple, good home-cooked food.

I came up with my Cream of Tomato & Basil Soup after my husband had a yearning for a tin of soup but the cupboard was bare. Within 20 minutes we were eating my home-made version and as nice as Heinz is you can’t beat freshly made soup for taste and nuttition. For the recipe do go over to Penny’s Recipes for my pimped up version of a British classic!

    This year’s tomatoes are growing in the greenhouse as we speak!

      Lucky you, I have failed over the years at tomatoe growing, they just grow and then rot!

    Actually had a Heinz tin of this a few weeks ago and loved it! Was going to buy some more, but got the recipe printed off instead…. Thanks

      Tinned soup is so expensive these days – much better to make to make a big batch of your own fresh soup:-)
