DIRECTIONS

  • In a large deep saucepan, over a medium heat, cook the tomatoes, onion, beef stock, basil, salt and pepper, nutmeg and coriander for 30 minutes.
  • Let cool a little, then remove and discard the cloves from the onion.
  • Puree the soup in a blender until smooth (This may be done in batches).
  • Return the soup to the saucepan and stir in the baking soda and sugar.
  • Blend the flour and butter together to form a smooth paste.
  • Stir this into the soup.
  • Watching carefully, cook the soup, over a medium-low heat, until thickened, 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Remove the saucepan from the heat and slowly stir in the warmed cream.
  • Return the soup to the heat and continue to warm it, just until it is piping hot and about to come to a boil.
  • (Don't let it boil or it will curdle and truly disappoint you).
  • Serve this soup garnished with fresh basil leaves.
