Yields1 Serving
Prep Time15 minsCook Time5 minsTotal Time20 mins
 1 kg tomatoes
 4 cloves of garlic
 fresh basil leaves
 3 tbsp olive oil
 1 tbsp tomato paste
 500 ml hot vegetable stock (freshly made or bought)
 salt and pepper
 2 tsp sugar
 60 ml cream
 50 ml gin
1

First, you heat up the pan and then put in the olive oil.

2

While the pan is heating up, chop up the tomatoes, basil, and garlic. You can use a garlic crusher here, the garlic will be much finer and it is much easier and faster than cutting the garlic up with a knife.

3

Put the tomatoes and the garlic in the pan and let it fizzle for a short time. Now, put in the tomatoes paste, stir it, and put in the gin. I used Voluptas Gin from C-S Spirituosen, the ginger and cinnamon fit in perfectly with the warming character of the soup.
You can add the basil leaves, salt, pepper, and sugar now. Let it simmer shortly, then put in the stock.

4

After letting the soup cook for about 5 minutes, take your hand blender (or any food processor) and puree the soup, add the cream while doing so.

5

To avoid tomato skins, leaves, and garlic in your soup, put the blended soup through a sieve, let the sieved soup simmer for a bit, and add more salt/sugar/gin, if needed.

6

Done! Serve this quick and warming soup with some cream and fresh bread. Enjoy!
