About this recipe: This soup tastes best if you use the ripest tomatoes you have. If you don't have ripe tomatoes, tinned tomatoes work just as well.

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1kg ripe tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 2 celery sticks, sliced
  • sugar to taste
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable stock granules or 2 small vegetable stock cubes cubes)
  • 2 tablespoons double cream
  • 1 tablespoon cornflour
  • salt and pepper to taste

  1. In a saucepan, melt 1 tablespoon butter and add the tomatoes, carrots, onion and celery. Add a little sugar and enough water to cover the vegetables.
  2. Cook until the vegetables have softened. Dissolve the cornflour in a little cold water and add to the vegetables, along with the cream and stock cubes.
  3. Transfer the soup to a blender or food processor and puree to a smooth soup. Return to a low heat, to thicken up. Season with salt and pepper. If it gets too thick, add a little water.
  4. Once ready, stir in the remaining butter before serving.
