Tomato and ginger soup recipe

This tomato and ginger soup is seriously fast food; there’s about a minute of chopping and then a couple of minutes of cooking before it’s all done. It’s also perfect for those with a cold.



  • 1L chicken stock
  • 1 tin (400g) chopped tomatoes
  • 4 tbsp roughly chopped fresh root ginger
  • 1 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • chilli flakes, optional
  • fresh lime juice, to serve


Pour the stock into a large saucepan and bring to simmering point.

Add the tomatoes, ginger, soy sauce and caster sugar.

Simmer for 2 minutes.

Serve with chilli and lime juice.


  • And as you can see, there are hardly any ingredients so the only thing to keep in mind is that you want to use really great tinned tomatoes that will give a bright, fresh flavour to the soup.
