A simple and elegant take on the classic tomato soup. This is for those who do not fancy the 'fake' and 'canned' taste of normal tomato soups. It's simple to make and just needs a little time or prep.
Best of all, it is vegetarian.
Zipped up with roast sweet capsicum (to sweeten the typically tart tomato), smoothened with tender roast garlic and the surprise herb is coriander (cilantro), it adds a different dimension to an otherwise bland and one dimensional soup.
You can switch to basil if you like and use fried garlic instead of roast garlic, but the taste will vary slightly.
Serve hot with mini cheese sandwiches to dip or cold with a dollop of cream, yoghurt or sour cream.
