Directions

Heat the oven to 200C

Slice each tomato in half and arrange the halves on the baking tray, cut side uppermost. Place the garlic cloves on the tray as well, leaving their skins on. Then season everything with salt and pepper and sprinkle a few droplets of olive oil on each tomato half and some on the garlic – about 1 tablespoon in all.

Then finally top each one with a piece of basil leaf. Now pop the whole lot into the oven and roast for 1 hour or until the edges of the tomatoes are slightly blackened.

About 10 minutes before the end of the roasting time, peel and chop the potato, place it in a saucepan with 400ml salted boiling water. Add the tomato purée then simmer for about 10 minutes.When the tomatoes are ready, remove them from the oven

Now scrape the tomatoes and all their juices into a food processor, rescue the garlic cloves from the tray, and then simply squeeze the pulp to join the tomatoes and discard the skins.

Then add the contents of the potato saucepan and whiz everything to a thick purée, not too smooth. If you want to, you can sieve the skins & pips out, but I prefer to leave them in because I prefer that texture and the fibre content!.

The soup is now ready to serve, reheating – very gently.
