Notes

To maximise the flavour of the soup it’s important to use really ripe tomatoes.If you have it on hand you could also sprinkle the soup with some torn dill sprigs or basil leaves. The soup can be made a day ahead up to the end of step 1. Refrigerate in an airtight container. You may need to give the soup a quick whisk if the ingredients are slightly separated.
