Roast Tomato Soup

I remember as a child coming home from school, especially in the Cape Town winter months, making instant tomato soup from a packet. That’s how we rolled in the 70’s and 80’s. The more convenient the better; I guess nothing much has changed 20 to 30 years later as moms rush to stock up on 2 minute noodles for their children. However, I do believe there’s more of an awareness in todays times for fresh produce and cooking “real food” from scratch; if of course you have the time.

One of those recipes made from entirely fresh produce and a dish that I love is a Roasted Tomato Soup. This specific soup recipe is from Neill Anthony who currently has a show on SABC 3, called Neill Anthony – the Private Chef which airs every Sunday at 16:30. If you would like to make this very simple, delicious Roasted Tomato Soup you will need:
10 roasted plum tomatoes
2 cups tomato juice splash hot sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar
80ml olive oil
4 cloves peeled whole garlic
Salt and Pepper
Add olive oil to hot pan
Roast garlic in olive oil
Add roasted tomatoes to garlic then add tomato juice and hot sauce
Simmer till warmed through (5min)
Add to blender and blend, add olive oil and sugar whilst blending
Season to taste then pass through sieve
