Heat the olive oil in a large pot; add onion and carrot with a pinch of salt. Cook the mixture until soft and translucent but not brown in color. Then turn the heat on high and mix in chopped garlic, tomatoes, and basil. Sauté the mixture for a minute or 2, and add the chicken or vegetable stock. Then bring it to the boil, lower the heat and simmer for about 20 to 25 minutes.

Allow the soup mixture to cool slightly before you puree it with a handheld blender. Bring the soup back to the boil and season with some salt and pepper. Serve warm with some freshly grated black pepper.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
