In my attempts to be a super saver, I have been making a lot of soup for lunches so I don't have to eat out or buy overpriced lunches in the supermarket. Here are two I made earlier:

Spicy Butternut Squash Soup and Chili Tomato Soup

For the Spicy Butternut Squash Soup click here.

And here is my recipe for the Chili Tomato and Basil Soup.

1 onion chopped
2 cloves of garlic chopped
1 red chili chopped
1 tin plum tomatoes
1/2 pint veg stock
2 tablespoons of chopped fresh basil
1 tablespoon of vegetable or olive oil

1. Gently fry the onion, garlic and chili in the oil for about 5 minutes or until onions become translucent.
2. Add the plum tomatoes and tip the stock into the tin to rinse out the remaining tomato juice.
3. Fill the tin with water and add to the pan.
4. Simmer for 20 minutes.
5. Take off the heat and add the basil.
6. Using a hand blender or transfer to a food processor and blend until smooth.
7. Season to taste and serve or put in pots to take to work.
