Spring in one's step, summer one step closer-A Simple Tomato Soup and Home-made Crackers to brighten the day

The following is my daughters spring realisation that Mummy doesn't as rule stock soups like her Grandparents and tends to make them fresh from raw ingredients. So this was her efforts one sunny Spring day at the age of ten to develop her own recipe for a simple taste home-made tomato soup good hot or cold, and taking her inspiration from Jamie Oliver to make her own crackers from a Tortilla wrap.

450g Tin of Tomatoes
2 Small Red Onions
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Stick of celery chopped
1 Tortilla Wrap
Anglesey Sea Salt
Freshly Ground Black Pepper
Fresh Chopped Parsley for garnish

Roughly chop the red onions, sauté in a pan with desert spoon of extra Virgin Olive Oil until golden. Add the chop celery, sweat for a moment. Add the tin tomatoes, seasoning to taste, bring to boil and simmer for 10-15mins. Liquidise or blend the mix to achieve a smooth soup.

In a frying pan, dry fry Tortilla wrap (both sides), break into pieces.

Serve the soup in a bowl garnished with chopped parsley, and side dish of tortilla crackers.
