Tomato & Basil soup

By | August 18, 2011

As I’ve blogged before, we’re growing a few things in the greenhouses this year, the main one being tomatoes.  When I planted the seeds, I only used one packet but my fingers appear to be quite green and I ended up with a lot of tomato plants.

I did give a few away but couldn’t bring myself to throw any in the compost heap, which annoyed M endlessly, as they were my babies and I had nurtured them.  What I’ve now got is 2 greenhouses that I can barely get in due to the huge number of plants in there, and more tomatoes than I know what to do with.

I’ve already made some tomato and chilli chutney but this barely made a difference to the amount of tomatoes we had so I turned to google.   I wanted a soup recipe but nothing too fancy or complicated so searched for tomato & basil as I have fresh basil on the kitchen windowsill.

One of the sites that came up was called A Wee Bit of Cooking which is a Scottish food blog and it had a fab tomato & basil soup recipe.  I won’t repeat the recipe here, go over there and have a look!

Her picture of a bowl of soup looks far better than mine but in my defense it was taken quickly with my phone!  Regardless of looks, it tasted wonderful.

There is also a recipe index on the blog and I’ve already picked out some more recipes to try!

I’m linking this post with White Lily Green’s Handmade Thursday.

This sounds yummy! I only wish that I was even half as green fingered as you. I had a go at growing quite a few things last year and they were all a complete disaster! So I think my tomatoes will have to come from Waitrose 😉
