Cold Tomato Basil Soup

Tomato basil soup is similar to a gazpacho soup, but with a little extra flavour. The natural sweetness of the tomatoes really comes through in this recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 kg tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 100 g fresh basil, chopped
  • 2 cups vegetable stock/ water
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp unrefined salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper (kali mirch) powder

Method

Take all ingredients together in a blender and blend until almost smooth, or until desired consistency is reached. Transfer to a large saucepan and simmer over low heat for 10 minutes. Refrigerate when soup comes to room temperature, for 4-6 hours. Serve chilled.

Serves 6-8
