This may be a 70s-style soup, but I absolutely love it – the tangy tomato is balanced beautifully with the sweet, scented orange. Serve with super-quick pesto pinwheels and enjoy the compliments!

  • 30g butter
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, sliced
  • 1 orange, zested and then peeled and the juicy flesh chopped
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 generous tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 x 400g tins whole peeled, diced tomatoes
  • ½ tsp cracked black pepper
  • ½ tsp sea salt

1 Heat the butter in a large saucepan. When melted, saute the onion and garlic with the orange zest for 3-4 minutes over a gentle heat until the onion is soft but not coloured.

2 Add the orange flesh, balsamic, sugar and tomatoes, and simmer for 10 minutes. Season and blend until smooth.
