There’s nothing to beat a steaming hot bowl of tomato soup on a cold winter’s day – especially when it’s this easy to make!


  • 1 leek, finely chopped
  • 1 stick celery, chopped
  • 150ml vegetable stock
  • 1 x 400g canned plum tomatoes
  • 80g canned Puy lentils
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 bunch fresh basil, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • Granulated sweetener, to taste


  1. Cook the leek and celery in a splash of the stock in a large, non-stick saucepan over a medium heat until softened.
  2. Add the remaining stock and all the other ingredients, bring to the boil and then reduce the heat to a gentle simmer, stirring occasionally, for 20 mins.
  3. Remove from the heat and use a stick blender to make a smooth, rich soup.
  4. Smart tip: Serve with cheesy croutons – find out how to make them here.
