Tomato and Basil Soup

This soup is so quick and easy to make (especially if you already have cooked rice in the fridge waiting to be used up!) It is also a really cheap meal that the whole family will enjoy all year round. I used a mix of large and cherry tomatoes so go with whatever you can find-it will be just as good!
