    Easiest Tomato soup.

    As the only soup I enjoy is tomato its always on the menu when during winter we have a soup dinner party. 3 choices of soup, hot crusty breads and later a good hot pudding to finish with. This is the one that I am always asked for the recipe for. Sometimes I just decline saying its a secret family recipe 😛

    1 tin watties tomato soup, 1 tin water, 1 tin crushed tomatoes.

    Fry some chopped bacon in the saucepan along with crushed garlic. Pour in the tins above and simmer. Add some sirrachi chilli sauce to your taste and a tsp marmite for extra flavour.

    Serve with crusty croutons or bread.  Enjoy. 🙂

    Chicken and Leek Soup:
    Serves: 8
    1 whole chicken with giblets
    2 bay leaves
    500g leeks, diced, white and green parts separated
    2.5 litres water
    30g rice
    1 pinch salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
    Preparation method
    Prep: 30 minutes |Cook: 4 hours
    1. Place the chicken, bay leaves, the green parts of the leeks and water in a large saucepan. Bring to the boil then reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer gently covered, for 3 to 4 hours.

    2. Remove chicken, giblets and bay leaves from the saucepan. Skim fat from the surface of the stock.

    3. Add rice, white part of the leeks, salt and pepper to the stock. Simmer vigorously for 15 minutes until rice is tender.

    4. Meanwhile cut desired amount of chicken meat and add to the saucepan. Reserve any remaining chicken for another use. Simmer a further 5 minutes to ensure the chicken is warmed through before serving.

    Takes a bit more time for cooking, but well worth it. 🙂
