I threw this together yesterday for lunch and surprised myself at how nice it was, so I thought I would share:


1 onion (finely chopped)

1 tbsp of olive oil

75g lardons

75g seedless baby peppers

100g sugar drop tomatoes

1/2 tsp cracked black pepper

1 heaped teaspoon of dried basil

Handful of fresh basil leaves (leave until close to the end of cooking)

400g chopped tomatoes

1 large clove of garlic


I just threw it all together into the slow cooker added about 200ml of water and left it for about 2 hours. About 10 minutes before I served it up, I poured the contents of the slow cooker into the food processer and gave it a quick wizz. I didn't puree it completely as I still wanted chunky bits in the soup. I poured in back in the slow cooker, stirred in some fresh basil leaves left it for another 10 mins of so and then served it up with some nice bread.


Easy peasy but delicious!
