I have noticed that it's soup time in Cape Town. This fresh tomato soup will beat any pre-packaged soup out there. Tomatoes are an excellent source of vitamin A, B, C and folic acid. Vitamin C is especially important in the winter months as it supports our immune system and keeps us healthy. Warm up this evening with a bowl of tasty tomato soup.
Fry onion in coconut oil for 2 - 3 minutes or until softened.
Add tomatoes and cover with water. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for 15 - 20 minutes.
Add vinegar and cook for 10 minutes.
Leave to cool before adding basil and liquidizing.
Enjoy hot or cold at any time of the day.
