Swede, Carrot And Tomato Soup

Published Tuesday, 08 March, 2016 by Meg

A really easy and cheap one pot soup / Serves: 2



  • 1 carrot
  • 1/2 a swede
  • 1 tin of tomatoes
  • Ground black pepper
  • Mixed herbs and chilli powder (optional)
  • 1/2 an onion
  • Water


Chop up the onion, swede and carrot.

Put the onion in a saucepan for 3 minutes or until it starts browning

(tip fry on a high heat and add a little water, saves money on oil and browns onions easily!)

Add the swede and carrot, cook these for another 3 minutes

Add the tin of tomatoes, seasonings and water to the top, depending on how large the pan is

Then simply leave on a simmer for about 20 minutes to an hour depending on how much time you have

Add more water if neededduring the cooking process

Blend the soup with a blender or stick blender

Water can still be added now if needed to thin the soup

(You can do the same process using less water to make a sauce for pasta or rice)
