Tomato and Carrot Soup
TOMATO AND CARROT SOUP
Preparation time: 10 mins
Cooking time: 20 mins
1 onion, chopped
4 carrots, peeled and sliced
6 tomatoes, roughly chopped
725 ml/1¼ pints of chicken stock
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
AND THIS IS WHAT YOU DO……………
Melt the butter in a large, heavy-based saucepan.
Add the onion and carrots, and cover the pan with a tight fitting lid. Allow the vegetables to sweat until soft, which will take about 10 – 15 minutes.
Add the chopped tomatoes and stock, bring to the boil, then simmer for 5 minutes.
Season to taste and allow to cool slightly.
Whizz the soup in a blender and pass it through a sieve to give a smooth texture, then return to the pan, reheat and stir through a little crème fraiche.
