Ingredients

Soup Ingredients

2 x 800g cans diced tomatoes

2 small onions, diced

2 celery sticks, sliced

1 large carrot, fine diced

1T minced garlic

1 cup liquid vegetable stock

300g diced bacon

½ tsp salt

½ tsp cracked black pepper

Handful fresh basil leaves, sliced

1 tsp dried thyme

2 tsp smoked paprika

2Tbsp Worcestershire sauce

150ml cooking cream

To serve

1 large sourdough roll per person to serve

1 dollop mascarpone cheese per person to serve (this is amazing don't skip this!)

Fresh chives, chopped, to garnish

Directions

1Combine all soup ingredients except cream into slow cooker. I used a 6L slow cooker

2Cook on low for 6hrs

3Using a stick blender/immersion blender, blend soup to smooth consistency

4Stir through cream

5Prepare each bread bowl by slicing off a lid and tearing out centre bread – leaving a thick wall of bread remaining inside the crust. Tear up removed bread (and lid if you like or leave that whole) into chunks.

6Place each bread bowl inside a wide soup bowl and arrange bread chunks for dipping around each

7Fill each bread bowl with soup. Garnish with a dollop of mascarpone cheese and chives

8Serve immediately

Notes

1I love the pairing of bacon with a creamy tomato soup and this one doesn’t disappoint. With the addition of fresh basil and some vegetables too this is both delicious and nutritious.

2Great for your next dinner party or just an everyday treat for the family to enjoy 😊

This is the best soup and if you double it you can use it for pasta sauce for spaghetti, just brown your mince with onions and add the soup and pour over cooked spaghetti, it’s delicious best spaghetti I’ve had
