Instructions

  • Blanch the roma and round tomatoes in boling water and remove the skin
  • Cut the tomatoes, except the cherry tomatoes, in quarters. Season all the tomatoes with salt, pepper and mix in the dried thyme, oreganum and olive oil. Don't add too much salt as the stock has salt. Place them on a baking sheet together with the garlic (skin on) and roast for 45 minutes until soft and slightly charred
  • Heat the butter in a pan and sauté the onion. Once translucent add the thyme and potato and cook until potatoes are brown. Add the chilli flakes and fry for a few seconds
  • Add the vegetable stock and cook until the potatoes are soft and tender
  • Remove the tomatoes from the oven. Add the tomatoes to the potato mixture and squeeze the garlic out of the skin and add to the soup. Heat through. Use a stick blender and blitz the soup until it is smooth

Notes

  1. If you are serving this soup as a starter then it feeds 4 people. However, as a main it serves 2. You can double the recipe if you feeding a family
  2. Although I used 3 different types of tomatoes you can use just Roma tomatoes if you wish
  3.  You can also use a Knorr Stockpot mixed in 3 cups of hot water 
  4. If you want a richer, creamier soup you can add more cream
