  • 1 bunch of fresh basil

  • ½ - 2 teaspoons of Chef Bernie’s Very Hot Sauce
  • (start with half and taste then add up to your tolerance)
  • 1 small pot of crême fresh

½ cup of boiling water if necessary (use if soup is too think only)

Instructions - Turn oven onto 200° C

Cut up the tomatoes into ¼’s 

Place into a roasting tin drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and mix up so that the tomatoes are all coated with the oil

Put into the centre of the hot oven and set the timer for 20 mins

Slice up the onions and garlic 

Put a slug of olive oil into a large saucepan big enough to take the tomatoes when they are cooked

Cook off the onions and garlic on the hob in the large saucepan and then add the tomatoes when they are roasted.

Add in the basil and stock powder

Cook for further 2 mins

Blitz in blender or with hand blender until smooth

Add in Chef Bernie’s Very Hot Sauce to taste
