Unlike much of the UK over the weekend, we didn’t see any snow however it was very cold, but also beautifully bright and sunny so as we are trying to work over our jungle – I mean garden into something to enjoy and grow our own vegetables in we headed out. Staying warm after such a morning meant that soup was needed, but true to form as we’re not a big soup eating family there wasn’t a quick tin in the cupboard that we could use so time for me to cook from the store cupboard a quick and easy winter warming tomato soup.

With only a few minutes something easy to put together was essential, I’d been helping in the garden so needed to come in and prep and cook it in the time that it took my husband to herd up the ice breaking kids and put away the garden tools. Our storecupboard generally has the same sorts of stuff in and I knew that there would be some stock and a tin of tomatoes hidden in the back – we’ve recently switched to passata for sauces as the kids prefer the smoother taste of it and they will then eat the food whereas otherwise it’s left on the plates!

  1. I knew I had to make this tomato soup recipe as soon as I saw the chili powder , what I didn’t expect was the delicious flavor from the mushrooms! What a genius twist!

  2. Thanks so much for this awesome recipe! I had to request your free conversion chart since I am in the US, but following it was super simple. My boys were super happy to have this warming soup recipe during the freezing weather we have had.

    The only change I made was to leave out the wine. I know that cooking evaporates the alcohol content and only leaves the flavor, but we don’t have any alcohol in our house so… LOL!

  3. I like to try recipes out before I leave a comment and this was great with my grilled cheese sandwich for yesterday’s lunch. The spice was just right. I am not a fan of mushrooms but with all the spices in it you could barley tell that they are there until i bit one.Thanks.
