The one thing I love about the colder weather is enjoying a lovely warming bowl of soup. Now on Slimming World you can still enjoy the shop brought tins and until recently they have become less syns than they used to be which is a win win for those of us who like to grab and go when heading to work.
Homemade is always so much healthier for you though, less preservatives and we know exactly what we are putting into them, and dare I say it a lot cheaper as you can batch make and pot them up for the freezer, or keep in airtight tubs in the fridge for up to a week (depending on ingredients used).

Tomato & Basil Soup
(just like Heinz)
- 1 tin chopped tomatoes
- 500g passata
- 1 tin cannelini beans
- 1 large carrot, grated
- 1 large or 3 small pickled onions
- 1 tablespoon of the pickled vinegar, or balsamic if you have it
- 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon fresh basil
- 1 vegetable stock cube
- ¼ pint cold water
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Add everything apart from the water to a blender and blend until smooth.
- Add the water a little at a time while blending to get desired thickness.
- Store in an airtight container.
- When it comes to eating simply bring to a simmer on the hob until heated through, or alternately heat in the microwave stirring halfway to ensure warmed through.
This stores in the fridge for up to a week and makes roughly 6 portions depending how big or small your appetite is.
