Tomato soup with thyme and spinach

Tomato soup with thyme and spinach

This is a really healthy, warming soup that has a delicious added richness when paired with melty MyLife Biocheese.

Note: You can add white beans to this soup, along with cooked pasta for extra carbohydrates, or additional veggies if you want to. The flavours are very versatile.

Ingredients:
1 can diced tomatoes
1 fresh tomato, diced
1 brown onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
6 sprigs thyme, stems discarded and leaves chopped
1 bunch spinach, washed and roughly chopped
½ cup olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup MyLife Biocheese, grated
2 cups vegan chicken-flavoured stock (Massel is a good all-vegan stock to use)

Method:
1. Sauté onions and garlic in the oil in a deep medium-sized saucepan until translucent and slightly golden.
2. Add tomatoes, stock, and thyme, and bring to the boil. As soon as boiling, reduce temperature to and simmer for approx 30 minutes, until the soup has thickened slightly and the flavour of the tomatoes have concentrated.
3. Add spinach and cook until wilted. Season to taste.
4. Ladle soup into bowls and top with MyLife Biocheese. Serve with crusty bread and enjoy!
