Tomato and Bean Soup

This is one of those make loads and eat for days recipes - easy and tasty. If you absolutely must, you can use canned tomatoes - but only if you can't get fresh tomatoes. I got the original recipe from Australian Women's Weekly Low Fat Meals in Minutes book.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fry onion and garlic in a pan, until onion is soft.
  2. Stir in the chopped tomatoes, stir more until tomatoes are soft.
  3. Add stock and the sauces, bring to boil and let simmer covered for 30 minutes. If you like your tomato soup smooth, you can blend the soup after this point. I like mine chunky.
  4. Stir in parsley and the beans. Simmer uncovered for five minutes or so, until the beans are hot.

I used tomatoes from the garden and beans from the farm box. I did opt to run it through the blender to make it less chunky. Next time I will keep the tomatoes, chicken stock and beans the same, but double everything else. We want to taste those flavors more.

Very chunky soup! Really nice flavour combination- I used a lot of tabasco and it worked really well with the beans and tomatoes. I used a can of black beans and a can of mixed (garbanzo, kidney, black eyed, romano), also canned stewed tomatoes and half a bulb of garlic. Very good, everyone enjoyed it.
