This is an unofficial Slimming World tomato soup recipe and could be used by anyone on any diet.
I love soup all year but particularly in the Winter, especially for a warm lunch. This tomato soup recipe is perfect to make either on the hob or in a soup maker. The ingredients are the same either way. I love my soup maker, it is so handy I use it all the time!

How to make this tomato and basil soup in a soup maker
If you want to make this soup in a soup maker it really is easy, just add all the ingredients to your soup maker and set it to smooth.
Remember to leave a few basil leaves aside to decorate the top of the soup when serving.
If you do not already own a soup maker there are lots of amazing ones on Amazon. I love mine using it often and I am sure you would too. Of course it can easily be made on the hob with a blender too.
The best tomatoes for tomato and basil soup
The tomatoes I find which are best for making tomato and basil soup are plum tomatoes. They have more flavour and are not too expensive.
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
Instead of using fresh tomatoes, passata works well. Passata is sieved tomatoes so full of flavour and not the seeds!
Simply swap the plum tomatoes in this recipe for another carton of passata.
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.
Often fresh herbs are reduced at the end of the day in supermarkets. If you spot a pack of basil for a couple of pence this is a great recipe to make with it.
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 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!

My daughters adored this tomato soup as much as I did. We used a few small chunks of red Leicester cheese to throw in there… even tastier than it already was!
Love a good tomato soup!
