Vegetable Stock Concentrate

  • 4 sticks celery including leaves
  • 2 carrots chopped
  • 2 zucchini
  • 1 onion sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 leek trimmed and sliced (white part only)
  • 1/2 bunch parsley
  • 1 sprig rosemary
  • 3 sprigs thyme (fresh) (or three tablespoons dried)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

Tomato Soup

  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp paprika
  • 2 tbsp thyme (dried)
  • 3 400ml cans diced tomatoes
  • 10 tbsp vegetable stock concentrate as above
  • 8 cups boiling water
  • salt and pepper to taste


Vegetable Stock Concentrate

  1. Add all vegetables, herbs and oil to a food processor and blitz until fine. Then transfer to an oiled pot and simmer for 30 minutes until soft.

Tomato Soup

  1. Heat oil in a large pot and add onion, garlic, thyme and paprika and fry until fragrant. Then add vegetable stock concentrate and tinned tomatoes then the boiling water. Bring to the boil and cook for about 30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. You will probably need more salt than usual as the stock concentrate does not contain salt.

Recipe Notes

It may seem like cheating to use tinned tomatoes but remember that in the cooler months tomatoes are not in season.  By using tomatoes in a tin you are enjoying those that have been picked at the best time - and so much cheaper too!
