4 whole ripe Lushious tomatoes
6 pieces of sweet basil
1/2 yellow onion
5 cups chicken stock
1 tbsp sugar
pinch of salt
pinch of black pepper
Poach the tomatoes in salt water until their skins have loosened.
Remove from hot water and dip into cold water immediately. Remove skin and seeds. Cut tomato flesh into dices. Reserve some garnishing later.
cut the onions into chunks. Heat oil in pot and sauté the onions. Add in tomato flesh and basil. Fry till tomatoes start to sweat.
Pour in chicken stock and bring to boil. Let it slowly simmer for 10-15 minutes until all has softened.
Season with salt, black pepper and sugar (might need more sugar if the tomatoes are sour). Pour into a blender and blend till smooth. Bring the soup back to a boil and serve hot with some diced tomatoes as garnishing.
