I was told by Paul, with no uncertain terms, that I had to have a recipe done, comic-booked and onto the blog before 11pm or there would be no mattress polka for anyone, given he’s tired. SO, imagine this done in the style of 24 – it’s going to be a quick post, and instead of Jack Bauer yelling at terrorists, you’ve got me accidentally tipping over a whole Magimix XL of cold soup with Roxette’s Dangerous playing in the background. Not QUITE the same high-stakes but well, that passes for drama in our house. I love Roxette, my old flatmate used to play her songs all the time. Mind she also used to leave her dirty knickers behind the radiator in her bedroom, which made the whole house smell of hot shredded wheat whenever the heating went on. I know your business, but I don’t know your name…
ANYWAY. I’ve seen plenty of people on facebook talking about this wonder soup – meant to taste EXACTLY like Heinz soup. I’m always so wary of this type of recipe – I’d rather have a bowl of Heinz rather than a knockoff, but actually…it’s pretty decent! Recipe card:
to make super speedy “just like heinz” tomato soup you will need:
two tins of beans, two tins of chopped tomatoes, two tins of carrots (with the water), a few pickled onions, a veg stock cube and worcestershire source.
to make super speedy “just like heinz” tomato soup you should:
Throw it all in the blender, pulse it until blended, heat and serve. It does taste creamy, oddly, but I’d maybe omit the carrot water as it makes it a bit starchy. BRILLIANT super-free meal though – onion, carrots and tomatoes all being cracking weight loss food, and baked beans are great for filling you up. There’s nothing more to it! It’ll do for a lunch, after all!
11pm now. Off to bed before Paul kicks off.

Just made this for lunch. Lush. Added some pasta shapes to avoid me dunking loads of bread in.
OMG i have just found you guys after looking for a SW friendly tomato soup…….you are Hilarious !!!
Love, love your blog! I can’t tell you how many times this clever recipe has saved me when I think I have nothing in for lunch/dinner. My daughter loves it and asks when we’re going to have it again :). Thank you for making meal times fun! x
She who must be obeyed won the raffle at her local SW. 2 tins toms, 1 tin farting fodder, 1 tin of see in the dark, and a jar of pickled onions. Pickled bloody onions?? “For a tomato soup'” sez she. “Oh aye?” sez me? Being of the male persuasion I was a bit dubious……well, a big bit tbh. The proof the pudding etc etc. Damned marvellous! Thanks x
Made this for lunch today, delicious.
Just made this and am astounded at how good it is. Glad I made the full quantity so I can freeze some for another day. Think I’ll also use it like a base for Bolognese Tec. Thank you so much.
