Little Bit Fancy Tomato Soup Recipe

Let's face it, sometimes times are tough. During these times, Heinz Big Red Tomato Soup has always been there for me. Cheap, satisfying, and yummy with toast, it's all a financially challenged vegan can ask for. Despite the fact that you can make a creamy version (just add 1/2 tin soy milk and 1/2 tin water, rather than 1 tin water), and sometimes I add pasta to spice it up (dinosaur shapes are a favourite), it can begin to get a little boring after a while. Enter the Little Bit Fancy Tomato Soup.

I actually stole this idea from one of my workplaces, a child care centre, and it has become Jeff's favourite way to have tomato soup.

Serves 2

1 tin Heinz Big Red Condensed Tomato Soup
1 tin crushed tomatoes
Couple of handfuls of basil, roughly chopped
2 tomatoes, diced (optional)

1. Combine condensed soup and 1 tin water, as directed on soup tin, in a saucepan over medium heat.

2. Add tinned tomatoes and diced fresh tomatoes (optional). Bring to the boil.

3. Remove from heat and stir in basil. Serve.

Getting bored of buttered toast? For something more interesting you could rub the toast with a peeled garlic clove to make crunchy garlic toast.

Happy eating! :)
