A good, tomatoey tang to this one. Winter goodness.
Ingredients: a fair few chopped tomatoes, a cup of finely chopped celery, 1 chopped onion, 1 cup of homemade chicken stock, a handful of basil or oregano leaves, salt and pepper, half a cup of full cream.
Steps: Throw all ingredients apart from cream and herbs into the slow cooker, top up with water to cover, and set to low for 8 hours. Let it cool slightly. Add the cream and herbs and blitz in your blender until smooth.
Serve with fried halloumi bits or a sprinkle of nuts or seeds.
*You can do this in a saucepan on the stove by simmering for 30 or so minutes rather than slow cooking.
