Fab Feb – Chopped Tomatoes

suma-ch-toms-picAnd now we come to the one item I can’t manage without in my kitchen; I use these in all sorts of things.  A 400g tin of organic Chopped Tomatoes from Hornett Wholefoods normally costs 75p; with 10% off for 48 hours, it costs just 67p – bargain!  You can use them in:

  • Spaghetti Bolognese
  • Curry (including my chickpea and spinach recipe from 4th February)
  • Soup
  • Risotto
  • Pasta sauces
  • Casseroles
  • Etc, etc…

Another of my favourite recipes:

Spicy Tomato Soup

  • 1 tin of Organic Chopped Tomatoes
  • A handful of brown basmati rice (500g – £2.15)
  • 1 tsp crushed chillies (25g – 95p)
  • 1 tsp mixed herbs (20g – 95p)
  • 2 tbsp of Organic Sweetcorn (340g – £1.25)
  1. Put the tomatoes in a medium sized pan; fill the empty can with water and add to the tomatoes. Add the chillies and herbs and bring to the boil.
  2. Once it’s boiling, add the rice and stir occasionally to stop the rice sticking to the pan. Turn down to a simmer.
  3. When the rice is cooked (after about 30 minutes; the tomatoes make the cooking process a little longer), add the sweetcorn. You only need to warm them through, so serve after a couple of minutes with a wholemeal roll.
