1. Peel and finely chop an onion. Melt a knob of butter in a saucepan over a low heat. Then add the onion and cook for 5 minutes until soft and transparent.

2. Add a 400 gram can of premium chopped tomatoes, a crumbled chicken stock cube, a splash of water and a pinch of dried thyme.

3. Cook for a further 10 minutes. Cool, before blending by hand or in a blender. Heat again to desired temperature. Season and garnish with a splash of olive oil, swirl of cream or croutons.

TOP TIPS

• Fresh stock or premium stock cubes give the best results. If you prefer to use vegetable rather than meat stock, add garlic for depth of flavour.

• Use seasonal vegetables for optimum flavour

• Experiment with herbs and spices.

• Thicken soup with potatoes, bread, pasta or more vegetables rather than flour, which is trickier to control and can result in a lumpy texture.
