Tomato Soup Recipe

 10 large sized, plump and ripe tomatoes, chopped, seeds removed
 A drizzle of sesame oil
 5 stalks basil, chop the leaves and separate the stalk
 50 g Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese rind
 2 cups unsalted chicken or vegetable stock
 1 stalk leek, thinly sliced, diagonally
 2 tbsp olive oil
 1 tbsp chopped fresh oregano
 3 cloves of garlic, crushed and chopped
 2 medium shallots or onion, chopped
 Salt and pepper to taste

Pre-heat oven to 190°C.


In a bowl, combine tomatoes, shallots or onion, fresh oregano, 1 1/2 teaspoon olive oil and freshly ground black pepper corn and toss. Arrange mixture evenly on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for about 45 minutes or until caramelised. Bring the pan out of the oven and let is stand.


Add the chicken or vegetable stock, cheese rind and basil leaves and stem. Season with salt and stir. Let the mixture simmer.


Let the mixture simmer about 15 minutes. Occasionally stir until liquid is slightly reduced.


Remove and discard the cheese rind and basil stems.


Use a hand blender to blend until smooth


Pour into soup bowls and drizzle with sesame oil.
