Mutti Polpa Finely Chopped Tomatoes aren’t your ordinary tinned tomatoes. They’re the tastiest, freshest, and most outrageously good value around. Today, we're going to share with you some easy to make recipes that take less than an hour to make.

Why Choose Mutti Polpa Finely Chopped Tomatoes?

Well, it's all in the quality of the tomato, and Mutti use only the finest Rotondo Di Parma tomatoes. They ripen slowly in the Italian sun and only get picked if they meet strict quality standards. If these tomatoes sang opera, they’d be Pavarotti.

But they don’t just taste incredible, we love Mutti because they have a low environmental impact throughout their entire supply chain. Their farms are within 90 minutes of the nearest factory which means they keep transportation distances to a minimum. In 2010, they began a partnership with WWF to reduce their water consumption and they saved 1 billion litres of water in 4 years. In their factories around 80% of the water they use has been recycled.

Quick and Easy Tomato Soup

Nothing beats a heart-warming bowl of tomato soup, and with Mutti, you can make a fresh batch in no time at all. This easy to make recipe is perfect as a healthy lunch that will keep you full till dinnertime. Just make sure you have a blender to make it the right consistency. You don't need many ingredients for this recipe and the following measurements will serve up two bowls of tomato soup:

Method

1. Start off by melting your butter into a large pan and add your diced onion. Cook this on a low heat for five minutes until the onion softens.

2. Add all your other ingredients into the pan and simmer for 10 minutes.

3. Once ten minutes are up, blend your soup and serve into a bowl. Garnish with some basil and enjoy! We’d recommend tearing off a piece of crusty bread to serve with it.

Full Flavoured Ratatouille

It's great as main course and even works well as a side dish. An additional bonus is that you can make it all in one pan so there won't be tonnes of washing up after. This list of ingredients below will serve around 6 people:

Method

1. In a large pan, heat the olive oil over a medium heat and add the onions, bell peppers and garlic. Allow this to fry lightly until the onions and peppers begin to soften.

2. Next, add in the eggplant and courgette and allow to cook for two minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour in the cans of Mutti Finely Chopped Tomatoes along with the salt and pepper, then reduce the heat and simmer.

3. Stir the pot occasionally and leave to cook for a further ten minutes until the mixture thickens and the vegetables become soft. Once cooked, remove from the heat, and add the white wine vinegar and stir in, then it's ready to serve.

Homestyle Baked Beans

Put down that tin of baked beans and give this homemade recipe a go. The rich tomato texture blended with spices gives you a delicious alternative to normal baked beans. Show your baked spuds some love with this recipe. And you don’t even need to use an oven. It's a super easy recipe to follow and takes just 30 minutes to put together so you can serve up a quick meal for the entire family. This list of ingredients will make enough to serve 4 people:

Method

1. Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over a medium heat, then add your onions and cook lightly until they soften.

2. Add in the Mutti tomato paste, crushed chilli, smoked paprika and your salt and pepper. Stir everything together and allow this to cook for two minutes so the flavours can combine.

3. Pour in the can of Mutti Finely Chopped Tomatoes. Leave this to cook for around 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Once the sauce has thickened, add in the can of cannellini beans and stir in to make sure they're evenly coated.

4. Leave the beans to cook through for five minutes then remove from the heat to cool. Garnish with a sprinkle of mixed herbs.

Spaghetti Bolognese

We've saved one of our favourite recipes till the end and we can guarantee this will be a meal that pleases everyone’s tastebuds. As the name suggest, it's suitable for vegans too because we're using Profusion's Organic Vegan Pea & Fava Protein Mince which is quick to prepare and tastes just like real mince. For this recipe, you will need to use a blender to make your sauce. This recipe will yield 4 servings:

Method

1. Cover the Vegan Mince in boiling water for ten minutes. Start off by soaking your Profusion vegan mince in just enough water to cover it for 10 minutes.

2. In a large saucepan, heat two tablespoons of olive oil over a medium heat. Once the oil is hot, gently fry the onion, celery, yellow bell pepper, carrot and garlic cloves until the vegetables soften.

2. Remove the Profusion vegan mince from the water and add to your pan. Increase the heat to medium-high and fry your vegan mince until it’s a light brown colour.

3. Next, add a can of Mutti Finely Chopped Tomatoes, mixed herbs, crushed chilli, salt, and pepper. Stir everything together to coat well then leave to cook on a low-medium heat for 25 minutes.

4. Whilst this cooks, bring a saucepan of water to the boil with a pinch of salt and once ready, add your dry spaghetti and cook until ‘al dente’ – this means it will be cooked but firm when bitten.

5. By now, the mince will be ready too, so you're ready to plate up your spaghetti and top off with the Bolognese sauce and enjoy.
