Recipe: Really Easy ‘Free’ Tomato and Basil Soup

Ever since I started following Weight Watchers years ago I have been pretty good at finding recipes that are healthy and quick to make as well as fit in with the Weight Watchers plan – although I don’t follow it strictly anymore.

Tomato and Basil Soup is something that I have made religiously for years now. It’s ‘free’ on Weight Watchers Simple Start and also Filling & Healthy plans meaning you can eat as much as you like – until you feel full. I like to have it with Warburtons Thins to dunk but it’s equally as good by itself.


Prep Time: 0 mins Cooking Time: 15 mins Serves: 4


  • 2 tins of chopped tomatoes
  • 500g passata
  • dried basil to taste


  • Put the chopped tomatoes and passata in a pan and bring to the boil. Add the dried basil – I usually give it a really good sprinkling but add as much as you like – you can never really add too much!
  • Boil for ten minutes or until it’s hot throughout and then remove from the heat and blitz with a hand blender.
  • Serve immediately but can also be frozen and lasts for a couple of days in the fridge.

summer deals!

    Ooh that’s a nice simple recipe. I hate bought tomato soup, much prefer to make it myself so I’ll be trying this. Although I have no idea what passata is so I’m off to look that up!

    I used to make soup all the time but I haven’t done it for ages. This one looks yummy though – you can’t beat tomato soup! If you fancy one that’s a bit more filling (I don’t know how it would do on the Weightwatchers front though) just add a tin of butter beans. When you blend it they make the soup go a bit creamy and it does fill you up more too.
