Whilst this easy consommé type tomato soup recipe is French, it takes its name from the inclusion of sherry. It is a light, delicate soup and the arrowroot is included to soak up the butter, rather than to thicken. It needs to be well seasoned.

Method

  1. Melt the butter in a pan and slowly cook the onions and garlic until soft.
  2. Add the stock, tomatoes, bouquet garni and peppercorns.
  3. Stir until boiling, crushing the tomatoes with a wooden spoon.
  4. Cover and simmer for 40 minutes.
  5. Pass the soup through a sieve and return to a rinsed out pan.
  6. In a small pan, boil the sherry until reduced by half and add to the soup.
  7. Add the slaked arrowroot, bring to the boil, add the lemon juice and salt to taste.
  8. Serve in bowls, with a swirl of cream and sprinkled chives.

Variations

Non-vegetarians should use chicken stock, rather than vegetable stock, if preferred.

Chef's notes

You can use a blender instead of a sieve to make the soup smooth, but the taste may be bitter because a blender will break down the tomato seeds.
