1 tablespoon oil
1 small red onion
1 garlic clove

1 small courgette
1 tin chopped tomatoes
150ml vegetable stock
1 tablespoon Tomato puree
½ tablespoon Sun dried tomato puree (optional)
½ teaspoon sugar
Chop all of the vegetables fairly small
½ inch cubes or smaller. It will save effort with the hand blender later and they will cook down quicker.
Heat the oil in a large pan
Fry the carrot first as ths will take longest
Add the remaining veg
red pepper and courgette and cook until soft. about 10 minutes.
Add the tin tomatoes
stock and purees and give another few minutes to bring back up to heat.
Dried or fresh basil can be used
add at the last minute before blending. No need to chop first if using fresh.
Using a hand blender straight in the pot is easiest although you can do this gradually in a worktop blender
blend until you reach a consistency you prefer.
Freezes well and can be gradually defrosted from frozen on a low heat on the hob or in the microwave.
