How to make tomato soup?

Peel and chop the onion, carrot, garlic and celery and brown lightly in the bottom of the pot (you can also add a drizzle of olive oil if you like, but this is not essential). Then add the tomatoes (if using roasted tomatoes, crush them gently), cook for a few minutes and add the water. Bring the mixture to the boil, then simmer gently under the lid over medium-low heat (about 40-50 minutes). When the carrots and celery are soft, mash and season. A blender, blender or food processor can be used to puree the soup. If you prefer a silky texture, you can also strain the soup through a sieve.To serve, add finely chopped fresh basil, coriander or green onion to the soup.
