Hurricane Soup

Well the tail end of Hurricane Katia is currently crossing the British Isles and its sure feels fresh outside.  Of course when its cold outside theres nothing better than a steaming hot bowl of homemade soup.

Give this one a try and it will soon become a winter staple in your kitchen.



1 kg plum tomatoes, halved – 1 large white onion, sliced – 2 cloves of garlic, halved – A handful of basil – 1 litre of chicken stock – 3 sun-dried cherry tomatoes – Olive oil – 1 teaspoon of caster sugar – Salt and black pepper

Preheat oven to 220/gas mark 7. Using a large roasting tin, heat the oil in the oven until very hot. Gently add the tomatoes, onion and garlic and sprinkle with sugar. Season generously and bake for 20-25 minutes. Stir, then add basil near the end of cooking. Blitz in a liquidiser with the hot stock. Serve with a swirl of sour cream or crème fresh.
