Chilled Summer tomato soup

Method

  • Blend the chopped tomatoes in a food processor and push through a sieve into a large bowl.
  • Then blend the red onion and chilli with 2-3 pieces roasted capsicum, the sugar, lemon zest and seasonings in the food processor.
  • Add the pureed tomatoes, whiz up and taste for seasoning. 
  • Then add up to 1 cup cream and briefly whiz up. Transfer the soup to a fresh bowl and chill well. 
  • When ready, toss the cucumber with 1 finely diced celery stalk, the spring onions, cherry tomatoes and 1-2 diced pieces of roasted capsicum with seasonings. 
  • Spoon a little of the salsa into individual long glasses, pour in the cold soup and serve with a celery stalk as a garnish. Or pour the soup into individual flat soup bowls and garnish with a spoon of the salsa.
