Directions

  1. Melt the butter in a pan and soften the onions and carrot for about 15 minutes. Stir in the flour and cook for a minute. Add the tomatoes, stock, garlic, salt, pepper and sugar. Bring to the boil and simmer for about 90 minutes. Leave to cool.
  2. Take the soup, a ladleful at a time and force it through a sieve, pushing the soft vegetables through with the back of a spoon. This removes all the seeds and tomato skin. No, whizzing it through a blender is no subsitute. It doesn't take long and isn't as tedious as it sounds.
  3. Return to the heat, add the cream and check for seasoning.
  4. Serve, with a sprinkling of chopped chives.
