Onion: Added for the depth of flavour and sweetness.
Carrots: Used to add sweetness. It helps to balance out the acidity of the tomatoes without having to add sugar.
Garlic: For flavour
Vine & Canned Tomatoes: The vine tomatoes add an amazing fresh flavour to the soup but they need to be fresh and ripe to achieve the most flavourful soup.
Stock: Tomatoes have quite a high water content but stock is still needed. Vegetable or chicken stock can be used. Use homemade/low sodium stock if making for a baby.
Fresh Basil: Fresh basil is a natural match for tomatoes, however, it can be missed out or replaced with other fresh herbs.
