Cold tomato soup with rosemary

    10 min

    This is my alternative to gazpacho. The tomatoes need to be very ripe for best results.

    1. Cross the tomatoes at the top with a knife and place into boiling water until the skin begins to come away. Leave to cool and then peel away the skin. Remove seeds and coarsely chop tomatoes.
    2. Place bread in a bowl and sprinkle with cold water. Let soak briefly and squeeze well.
    3. Puree the bread with tomatoes, rosemary and garlic in the blender (be careful, the mixer may be too full, process if necessary in two portions). Add stock.
    4. Season with salt, pepper and lemon juice. Serve chilled.
