The best tomatoes for tomato and basil soup
Alternatively, you could use vine-ripened plum tomatoes for even more flavour though this tends to push the price up.
Make Unofficial Slimming World tomato soup on a budget
I always use the cheapest cans of beans and carrots for this so don’t worry about buying the supermarket value brands you really won’t taste any difference.
Alternatively, pop it in the freezer for the next time you make this recipe. It works great with frozen basil too as all blends down the same!
Why you need vegetables to lose weight
Everyone knows vegetables are good for you, don’t they? They are healthy and filling for very few calories!
The best vegetables are those with low-calorie density. Basically, we are talking about the healthier vegetables – potatoes don’t count but butternut squash is much healthier for example!
This means if you eat 100g of spinach, for example, it is just 23 calories and obviously, 100g of anything would fill you up significantly. On the other hand, 100g of crisps, which would be just as filling, is around 536 calories!
