Tomato Soup

Ingredients :

  • 650gr Red, ripe tomatoes, cut in ¼
  • 15gr Sundried Tomatoes
  • 40gr Tomato Paste
  • 50ml Olive Oil

Method :

  1. Place all the ingredients in an oven tray, cover with foil and roast just until the tomatoes are soft.

  2. Remove from the oven, cover the tray with plastic wrap and allow to slightly cool down.

  3. Liquidise and strain. When heating up you might need to add a little bit of water/vegetable stock to get the soup to the correct consistency. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add home-made coconut sorbet for an extra delight.
