Hints & Tips

Below we added some of our communities most common hints and tips. We hope you find them useful.

A lovely tasting soup full of flavour
Instead of tin tomatoes I roasted fresh greenhouse tomatoes took skin’s off and continued with the recipe, delicious
A bit thick
I found that the water I added evaporated quickly with the lid on for the amount of time it needed to cook and ended up adding more water at the end to make it a bit thinner. Still packed full of flavour!
A delicious soup made using store cupboard items.
This soup was so tasty and easy to make. An ideal lunch which we all enjoyed. I added croutons and some grated cheddar to serve on the soup

How can I work out the calories of this recipe if I left out the potatoes?! Thanks


    SharonMonday 23rd October 2023

    Hi Clare, we wouldn’t recommend leaving the potatoes out as they thicken the Speedy Tomato Soup. If you do want to adjust ingredients and calories you may find this article useful : How to work out calories and points in a recipe. Hope this helps.


Coral BarclaySunday 4th December 2022

Hi – can I chuck all these ingredients into my soupmaker and press the smooth button or does it really need to go on the hob? Thanks


    HollyWednesday 21st December 2022

    Hey Coral, we haven’t tested this recipe in a soup-maker but it should work fine, just refer to your manufactures instructions. Hope that helps!


EmsMonday 28th November 2022

    Hey Ems, we have an article HERE which talks you through how to save a recipe, hope that helps!


EmmaMonday 10th January 2022

Can you do this in the slow cooker? Many thanks


    HollyFriday 14th January 2022

    Hey Emma, this recipe is so quick and easy it’s better suited for the hob as it’s so quick to make. We have an article HERE that helps with converting recipes for slow cookers which you may find helpful. Also be sure to check out of slow cooker collection of recipes HERE, hope that helps!


Emily MelvinTuesday 16th November 2021

How many g or ml per serving it is for 90 cals? Please


    HollyTuesday 16th November 2021

    Hey Emily, We work out our recipes on the serving size not by weight. To work out your own weight of a serving you would need to make the finished dish and divide servings, as the weight will vary due to variation of ingredients and water content it’s not something we can do as an exact measure. If you scroll down to the recipe card at the bottom of the page on the website there is a little arrow by servings and you can alter up or down to serve more or less people. Hope that helps!


Sue morrisMonday 30th August 2021

I have loads of fresh Tom’s would it be 400gms of those instead of tinned x


    SharonFriday 17th December 2021

    Hi Sue, tinned tomatoes usually have a more intense flavour than fresh tomatoes so they work well in soup. We haven’t tried making this soup with fresh tomatoes, but if you’d like to try it, we would suggest a 400g tin is equivalent to about 5 or 6 medium tomatoes. These will weigh over 400g but you will need to skin and deseed them first. You could try adding a little tomato puree to make the tomato flavour more intense. Hope this helps!


Morag StanhopeThursday 12th August 2021

Making this again……another winner from pinch of nom Thank you x


    HollyThursday 12th August 2021

    Hey Morag, thanks so much for your message we are so glad to hear you enjoyed this recipe!

    Hey Amie, so glad you enjoyed this recipe!


KFMMonday 5th October 2020

Hi, thanks for the recipe! Can I ask why it is 2points on WW purple? I can only see 2points in total for the stock cubes? Is this 2points per total 6servings?


Ann WilsonSunday 8th March 2020

Would passata be alright to use instead of tinned tomatoes and what quantity as I cannot eat seeds, many thanks


    Sharon FitzpatrickFriday 8th May 2020

    Hi Ann , yes, you could use passata instead if you prefer. The tin of tomatoes in this recipe would be 400g. Passata often comes in a 500g carton, so you could add that and it should be fine. Let us know how you get on. Thanks for getting in touch.


KazSunday 24th March 2019

Just made this, it was lovely, great for a lunch ????


Jo RobertsSunday 29th April 2018
