This thermomix spicy tomato basil soup is perfect for when you find yourself with some sweet, ripe tomatoes. With a few more pantry ingredients you'll have dinner on the table in 20 mins!
This recipe is shared with us from one of my lovely ThermoFun Club Members, Tania.
Tania says: "For those that don’t like it spicy just omit the cayenne pepper. While it’s cooking in the Thermomix, I usually make some grilled cheese sandwiches as a tradition to serve with our tomato soup".
This makes a wonderful easy Sunday afternoon or night meal in front of the tv... or any time for that matter!
