  • 1kg (2lb) tomatoes
  • 4 red onions, peeled, cut into wedges
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 2 rosemary sprigs
  • 2 red peppers, deseeded and cut into wedges
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 150ml (5fl oz) hot vegetable stock
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • Dash of Tabasco
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 5 tbsp vodka, optional
  • 150ml carton soured cream

Leave out the vodka and replace with an equal amount of water or stock if youre serving this to youngsters.


  1. Set the oven to 220C/425F/Gas Mark 7. Put the tomatoes, onions, garlic, most of the rosemary and peppers in a roasting tin. Drizzle with the oil and roast for 40 mins, until the vegetables are tender and beginning to char.
  2. Blend half the vegetables and half the stock in a processor until smooth and pour into a jug. Repeat with the remaining vegetables and stock.
  3. Add the vinegar, Tabasco, Worcestershire sauce and vodka, if using. If youd like a smooth texture, pass it through a metal sieve. Warm through and serve in cups with a dollop of soured cream and top with rosemary.
  4. To freeze: Put cooled soup into a container. Freeze for up to 3 months. Defrost overnight in the fridge before eating.
