Roasted tomato and caraway soup
Try this twist on a classic tomato soup for a budget-friendly meal the whole family will love. Aromatic caraway seeds have a distinct nutty taste that adds depth, whilst roasting the tomatoes maximises their flavour. A sprinkling of salty feta is the perfect finishing touch.
- Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C. Put the tomatoes cut-side up on a baking tray. Drizzle over 2 tbsp oil and sprinkle over the caraway seeds and thyme leaves. Season. Roast on the middle shelf of the oven for 45 mins.
- After 35 mins, heat the remaining oil in a large, heavy-based pan over a medium-high heat. Add the onion; fry for 4-5 mins until soft. Stir in the garlic; cook for 1 min. Reduce the heat.
- Spoon the tomatoes and juices into the pan. Stir well, then add the stock. Increase the heat and bring to a simmer. Remove from the heat and blitz with a stick blender. Season and keep warm.
- Put the sunflower and sesame seeds in a dry frying pan. Toast over a medium heat for 3-4 mins until they start to turn golden. Spoon the soup into warm bowls and sprinkle over the crumbled feta, toasted seeds and chia seeds, if using.
Tip: Use fresh stock or vegetable stock pots instead of cubes to make this soup gluten-free.
