 4 Tins Plum Tomatoes

Peel and finely chop onions and fry in the olive oil on a medium heat (keep the lid on).
Peel and finely chop the garlic.
Peel and dice the potato to about 1cm/½" cubes.
Reduce the heat and add the garlic and potato cubes to the saucepan.
Add 3-4 Tbsp water and gently fry the potato, onion, and garlic in the saucepan with the lid on for 10-15 minutes.
Do not allow to brown and stir occasionally to avoid sticking.
Chop the tinned tomatoes, while in the tins, with a sharp knife.
Add tinned tomatoes, paprika and herbs, stir well.
Crumble stock cubes into saucepan and stir to dissolve.
Season well with black pepper.
Turn heat up slightly, stir well then remove soup to a blender and blitz thoroughly.
Return to saucepan.
Taste soup, if it is too sharp, add half a teaspoon of sugar and stir to dissolve.
If you wish to thicken the soup some more, add a little tomato puree (you may need to add a little more sugar).
Reheat the soup.
Fry slices of sausage chorizo in a dry pan.
Serve the soup in warmed bowls.
Place the chorizo on top of the soup and drizzle over the oil that has released from it.

 For a spicier soup add 1 tsp of garam masala with the paprika.
 For a creamier soup add 2-3 Tbsp of double cream or Créme Fraiche just before serving.
