Day 27

White Bean and Tomato Soup (Serves 4)

This is a delicious soup and very easy (and cheap) to make. Some grated Parmesan cheese and posh bread just rounds it off nicely.


2 tbsp olive oil

1 onion (sliced)

1 garlic clove (crushed

800g tinned chopped tomatoes

2x420g tins cannellini beans

1 tbsp tomato puree

600ml vegetable stock

15g fresh basil leaves (torn into bits)

1 tsp caster sugar


1. Heat the oil in a large pan. Fry the onions and garlic for about 8-10 minutes.

2. Stir in the tomatoes, puree and stock. Stir and simmer for 10 minutes.

3. Add the cannellini beans and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the basil and sugar. Add seasoning to taste.
