Tomato and butter bean soup

September 14, 2010

I wanted something nourishing to eat after a having some fillings at the dentist but not too taxing for my teeth. This is what I made and is it simple and delicious!

Serves 2

500ml tomato juice or 400g tin chopped tomatoes plus 100ml extra water
100ml water
100ml red wine
1 tbsp tomato puree
1 tin (about 200g) butter beans, drained
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped finely or crushed
1 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
salt to taste

Gently fry onion and garlic in a large saucepan until soft. Add the wine and simmer for a minute before adding the tomato juice (or tin of tomatoes) and water. Bring briefly to the boil and add the black pepper and basil. Reduce heat to gentle simmer for about 10 minutes. Add salt to taste and serve.
