Cream of tomato soup

- homemade soup that is :) , can't be beaten, especially at this time of the year. Today's lunch is cream of tomato soup

Fill a roasting tin with ripe tomatoes, drizzle with your preferred oil, teaspoon each of sugar and sea salt and some freshly ground black pepper, bit of chopped garlic. Roast in a hot oven until very soft ad just starting to turn colour. Turn the whole lot into a saucepan and add a chopped onion, simmer with the lid on until onions soft and cooked through. Remove from heat, then liquidise and pour back into rinsed pan. Heat to almost boiling point, then stir in a tablespoon of double cream and serve.

Ironically I was reading a copy of Lakeland's latest catalogue over lunch - their soupmaking machine is £599. Ok, so it makes ice cream and crushes ice too................... but where's the fun in that?
