    1. Crumble the bread and sprinkle with the vinegar. Set aside for 5 minutes.
    2. Put all the prepared vegetables in a blender or food processor with 50ml cold water and whizz to a purée. Add the soaked bread, oil, curry powder and sugar. Blend again and season to taste. Chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
    3. Just before serving, stir the yoghurt into the soup. Thin the soup with a little cold water if too thick. Serve chilled, sprinkled with the basil.

    COOK SMART

    If you prefer the tomato to be cooked, cook it gently over a low heat for 20 minutes with the onion, garlic and olive oil, and let it cool before adding the other ingredients.
