Godminster Vintage Organic Cheddar Toastie with Tomato Soup

The perfect Autumn warming treat, this simple yet classic dish is one of our favourite home comforts! We like to add some delicious ham for a little extra flavour.

  • 1 onion (diced)
  • 1 celery stick (chopped)
  • 25g butter (plus extra for toastie)
  • 2 garlic cloves (peeled and chopped)
  • 400g chopped tomatoes
  • 750ml vegetable stock
  • 1 tbsp ketchup
  • 100ml double cream
  • 1 tbsp creamed horseradish
  • Ground pepper
  • 2 slices of white farmhouse bread
  • 100g Vintage Organic Cheddar
  • 2 slices of thick, roasted ham (optional)
  • Melt the butter in a saucepan and cook the onions and celery for 10 minutes until soft
  • Add the garlic and cook for an additional 2 minutes
  • Pour in the tomatoes, stock, ketchup and pepper with a pinch of salt
  • Bring to a simmer and cook for around 20 minutes
  • When the soup has almost cooked, prepare your toastie
  • Butter the outer edges of both slices of bread
  • Flip one slice over and sprinkle your Godminster Vintage Organic Cheddar. You can also add your ham at this point if you wish
  • Place the other slice on top (with butter outer edge facing up) and fry in a pan until the cheese is melted and the outside is golden brown
  • Pour the horseradish and double cream into the soup and stir on a gentle heat
  • Using a hand blender, blend the soup until smooth and then serve
