Empty the contents of two tins of chopped tomatoes into a blender, along with a can of red kidney beans and 200ml of vegetable stock. Blend for approximately 30 seconds until smooth. Empty the contents of the blender into a pan, add the sugar and tin of spicy mixed beans and heat through, stirring continuously until piping hot.
Remove from the heat, stir through the fresh basil then serve with a either dessert spoon of low fat crème fraîche, freshly grated Parmesan or a swirl of balsamic glaze on top and a further sprinkling of fresh basil leaves.
Tip: Coriander makes an excellent substitute for the basil if you prefer.
