I really love soup, and it’s such a brilliant way to get in lots of portions of vegetables, but I just don’t always find the time to prepare it as it usually involves lots of chopping! I discovered a new way of making soup in a baking tray just before Christmas (see my Best Soup recipe here) and I thought I’d try it again with more of a basic soup. So with this one, I just peeled and roughly chopped and onion, threw in some whole cloves of garlic and then just chopped tomatoes, carrot and basil and popped it into the oven, and it made a very delicious soup. Certainly with tomatoes I always think they taste better with a longer cooking time, and I love garlic cooked this way too. It’s the easiest soup to make, and perfect if you are short of prep time.
