    Stolen from a friend

    Ingredients
    1 onion
    1 small potato
    A little butter
    500g fresh tomatoes, preferably over- rather than under-ripe
    A couple of cloves of Garlic
    1/3 pint of milk
    1 chicken stock cube
    2 tablespoons of chopped fresh basil (really, it is much better fresh)
    ¼ pint of single cream
    Salt
    Ground black pepper
    Preparation
    Finely chop the onion, and potato, and lightly fry in the butter until they soften.
    Finely chop the tomatoes, and add to the potato and onion, fry for 5 minutes.
    Add all other ingredients apart from the cream. Before adding any salt add the stock cube, and taste, it’s quite likely that you won’t need any. Allow to simmer for 15 minutes. If the mixture is looking too thick add a little water/milk.
    Cool the soup slightly, then pour into a blender / food processor and liquidise. If you don’t have a blender, push the soup through a sieve with the back of a wooden spoon.
    Add a little bit of cream to the soup, and blend / stir in.
    Pour into serving bowls, and add a swirl of cream to each bowl.

    this is what mine looked like when done
