Tangy. Hearty. Warming. Chunky.

The meatless meals recipe

When I was little and went to the football with my dad, we always seemed to end up taking a thermos of tomato soup with us. It was revolting tinned stuff that I wouldn't usually enjoy eating but after sitting in the cold for an entire afternoon, it was just wonderful. This tomato soup recipe is just as hearty and delicious and doesn't require the eater to be damp and hungry for it to taste great. And it's an easy way to use up some of those gazillion tomatoes that have grown over summer.

1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1 onion, diced small
3 bay leaves
3 whole cloves
2 teaspoons dried tarragon
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon sugar
4 cups or 1L medium to strong vegetable stock
1kg fresh tomatoes, diced small
1-2 cups cooked, tinned or fresh (but not dried) beans such as borlotti, haricot, cannellini etc
black pepper to taste

All the ingredients need to be finely chopped as there is no pureeing. This is a chunky soup.

Melt the butter and oil together.
Saute the onion in the oil and butter until soft.
Add all the other ingredients.
Simmer very gently for an hour with the pot lid on.
Remove the bay leaves (and cloves if you can find them).
Serve with cracked black pepper.

Makes 4-6 bowls.
