Sauté diced onions in olive oil for 4 minutes until tender, add the garlic, cumin, chilli and seasoning and sauté for a further minute. Add in the tomatoes, chopped capsicum and stock or water and bring to the boil, then simmer for 10 minutes. Puree and serve with fresh chopped basil for freshness.
