- 1 1⁄3 kg tomatoes, chopped
- 2 onions, chopped
- 3 garlic cloves, peeled
- 2 tbsp tomato puree
- 1 litre chicken or vegetable stock
- 10 g butter
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- salt and pepper
Step 1: Melt the butter
Place a pan on a medium heat, add the oil and butter, stir well and allow to melt.
Step 2: Fry the onions and garlic
Once melted add the onions and chopped garlic and stir. Sweat the onions until they have a little colour, stirring occasionally to prevent them from burning.
Step 3: Cook the soup
Add the tomato puree, chopped tomatoes, stock, stir again and bring it to the boil. Once boiling, cover and turn the heat down to a simmer. Leave to cook for 30 minutes. Once cooked, remove from the heat.
Step 4: Blend
Remove the lid and with your hand blender, pulse to blend the soup into a rough puree, taking care not to raise the stick blender out of the soup! Finally season with salt and pepper.
Step 5: Sieve
Place the sieve over a large bowl and ladle the soup into the sieve. Using the back of the ladle, push the pulp down into the bowl below. Continue until all the soup has been sieved and transfer it back into the pan. Reheat if necessary.
Step 6: Serve
Pour into soup bowls and add a dash of cream just before serving! Serve with some fresh crusty bread and enjoy!
