Super fresh, and super flavoursome. Your taste buds are going to love this delicious dunkable tomato soup with that perfect touch of chilli.
Get a pot over medium heat, add a dash of olive oil and start frying off the onions, garlic, chilli and celery for a few minutes. Add the tomatoes and keep frying for another 3-4 minutes.
Transfer the ingredients from the pot to a blender (do not discard the pot). Also add 3 quarters of your basil too (leave the rest for garnish). Add a splash of the stock just to help the ingredients blend together well. Blend until smooth, then transfer the mixture back to the pot.
Add the stock and tomato puree to the pot, stir well and then bring to a boil. As soon as the mixture starts boiling, bring the heat down to gently simmer the soup.
Simmer for another 5-10 minutes, stirring halfway through. Stirring the soup just ensures that it doesn't start sticking and/or burning at the bottom of the pot. If there are any foamy bits floating at the top, just use a large spoon to skim it off.
Season with salt, pepper and the sugar. Use a ladle to serve in a bowl and garnish with a dollop of sour cream and a basil leaf. Serve with some torn up bread and enjoy.
