  • bunch flatleaf parsley, finely chopped

Method

  1. In a large shallow pan, fry the onion and garlic in the olive oil on a low heat for 8 mins; do not brown. Roughly chop the tomatoes and add along with the sugar, vinegar, 750ml water and seasoning. Bring to the boil and simmer for 35 mins, stirring from time to time.

  2. Whizz with a hand-held blender until smooth. For an ultra-smooth, dinner party-style soup, you can pass the liquid through a fine sieve, but this is quite fiddly and your blender will give perfectly good results.

  3. For the gremolata, mix together the lemon zest, juice, olive oil, garlic and parsley, then serve on top of the soup.

I absolutely love this soup so quick, easy and so so tasty. I make sure that i buy enough tomatoes to sink a ship just so i can forget about them till they go squishy just so I can do this soup.. I do add a couple of squirts of tomato puree though just for a bit of oomph.. Oh and it freezes brilliantly..

(i just made the soup not the gremolata)
So tasty and cheap, and much thicker than i expected. i was worried it would be watery but its lovely.

I also added tomato puree and a few dash's of Worcestershire sauce to make it tangy.

A bit too sweet (think i had sweet tomatoes or it was the puree) so next time i'm going to add less sugar. Next time i'll add it gradually to taste.

How yummy is this !!! I made it with my daughter and we baked home made bread to dip in. And with all that vitamin C Im sure we warded off the dreaded cold bug everyone caught. I now buy tomato's by the crate so we always have it ready to make.Yum Yum

Dead simple, nice-looking and tasty. Go easy on the gremolata though!

I've just made this too - got the idea after a lovely lady called Martha made it for me at a dinner party! Coincidence? Much better than the recipes that used tinned tomatoes - really, really fresh tasting.
