Add the stock, place the lid back on the pot and allow to slowly cook for about 40 min.
Add the citrus peel and tomatoes and just allow to heat through.

Tip of the day

Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
