Tomatoes and basil make a perfect combination. Tomatoes are packed with lycopene - a powerful antioxidant that becomes more abundant when the tomatoes are cooked. Basil also has strong antioxidant as well as ant-bacterial properties, and provides a wonderfully fragrant contrast to the sweetness of the tomatoes.

This soup makes a delicious, nutrient-rich broth that is easy to make and brimming with goodness.


  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 350 g potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 450g tomatoes, skinned and sliced
  • 900 ml water
  • 1 tsp vegetable bouillon powder
  • Salt and pepper
  • Basil springs


  • Heat the butter in a large saucepan. Add the chopped onion, cover and cook gently for five minutes until soft.

  • Add the potatoes, cover again, and cook gently for a few minutes.

  • Add the tomatoes and cook for about five minutes, stirring from time to time. Do not allow the vegetables to brown.

  • Add the water and the bouillon powder, cover again and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.

  • Liquidize or blend the soup. Reheat the soup gently and season with salt and pepper.

  • Serve the soup garnished with basil sprigs.
