Tomato and Basil Soup
A simple and flavourful Tomato and Basil Soup that can be frozen.

Heat the olive oil and butter in a saucepan. Add the onion along with a pinch of salt. Saute on a gentle heat until the onion is soft and translucent, then add the garlic. Cook for a further minute or two then pour in the tomatoes, basil and stock or water. Season with salt and pepper.
